Home water meter installation – List of volunteers

As part of the province’s drinking water conservation strategy  (Stratégie québécoise d’économie d’eau potable) , the City of Deux-Montagnes will install 60 water meters in local homes to obtain samples in a survey of residential drinking water consumption.

List of volunteers for home water meter installation

This requirement by the provincial government is intended to determine how much drinking water, on average, a City of Deux-Montagnes resident uses at home, in order to verify the amount of water consumed annually.

The City of Deux-Montagnes is now seeking volunteers to have one of these meters installed on their water main entry pipe. During this voluntary exercise, the water meters will be supplied and paid for by the City, including installation by a licensed plumber.

The City of Deux-Montagnes will then have the water meters read once a year, and the readings will be entered on an official record of water consumption in residential areas.

The City of Deux-Montagnes would like to assure our residents that this exercise is for statistical purposes only, and will have no impact on the tax accounts of those who voluntarily contribute to the sampling process.

To register as one of our official volunteers for home water meter installation, please contact the department of public works at 450-473-4688.
