2019-2025 Quebec Drinking Water Economy Strategy (year 2018)
The 2019-2025 Quebec Drinking Water Economy Strategy (the Strategy) includes more comprehensive tools to provide a better portrait of the use of drinking water and the cost of water services. New indicators and personalized objectives have been introduced to take into account the specific characteristics of each municipality. These indicators are recognized internationally as being the best suited to monitor the evolution of the results of each municipal network and to compare the results between them. In addition, the objectives are now specific, according to the characteristics of the municipalities. Depending on the achievement of the objectives, the progressive actions to be implemented differ. Moreover, some of these actions offer various options available to municipalities in order to offer them more flexibility in their journey towards achieving their objectives. https://www.mamh.gouv.qc.ca/infrastructures/strategie/a-propos-de-la-strategie/Ce link will open in a new window. Description: Objectives adapted to the profile of each municipality are set and presented in the form of a threshold to be reached according to their characteristics and particularities. Among these objectives, residential consumption in liters per person per day in municipalities makes it possible to bring Quebec municipalities back to the comparative threshold. RESIDENTIAL CONSUMPTION Residential consumption in liters per person per day in drinking water distribution systems. This service also makes it possible to compare the quantity of water distributed for the municipality in relation to its region, comparable population classes and the Quebec value. QUANTITY OF WATER DISTRIBUTED Quantity of water distributed in liters per person per day in drinking water distribution networks. This is a targeted objective for the province to reduce the quantity of water distributed by 20% compared to the 2015 value (458 l/pers/d) INFRASTRUCTURE LEAK INDEX (IFI) The infrastructure leak index represents the ratio between real water losses and unavoidable real water losses. A supplement associated with active leak control is also present in the service: SEARCH AND REPAIR OF LEAKS Active control of leaks in a drinking water distribution network makes it possible to actively locate water leaks so that they can then be repaired quickly and properly. Credit: The data presented come from the Annual Reports of the Municipal Drinking Water Economy Strategy completed by the participating municipalities and approved by the MAMH.
