York Region’s Water for Tomorrow program offers education and programs for residents as well as rebates on selected water-saving appliances for businesses.
Our water system is vast and complex. It takes hundreds of km of pipes, thousands of watts of
electricity and hundreds of hours of manpower to get water to you.
In York Region, about 85 per cent of our water comes from
Lake Ontario, three per cent from Lake Simcoe and 12 per cent from groundwater:
It's treated before it's delivered to you through a vast and complex system.
When water comes out of your tap, it's clean and fresh. But
how does it get to our homes and offices 24 hours a day? And where does it go
once you flush?
How exactly does York Region treat our water it to ensure
it's safe to drink? The water treatment process has three stages - screening,
filtration and disinfection.
