Quebec drinking water saving strategy 2011 to 2017
The Quebec Drinking Water Economy Strategy (the Strategy) was implemented in March 2011 by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MAMH) to meet commitment 49 of the National Water Policy. This strategy is part of the global context of tightening water policies, from an integrated management perspective and from a sustainable development perspective. It aims to provide municipalities with the tools necessary to make a clear and precise diagnosis on the use of water in each territory in relation to recognized standards. The current version of the Strategy covers the period 2019-2025. For all of Quebec, the Strategy's objectives for 2025 are: - a 20% reduction in the quantity of water distributed per person compared to 2015; - the achievement of a moderate level of leaks according to the International Water Association index; - the gradual increase in the investments necessary to maintain assets in a sustainable manner while gradually eliminating the maintenance deficit. In addition to these global objectives, objectives adapted to the profile of for each municipality are set. These adapted objectives, presented in the form of a threshold to be reached, are now specific according to the characteristics and particularities of municipalities.
