Water Loss and Conservation Program
Update: March 1, 2022
The Town continues to monitor and collect data on water consumption in the community. Unfortunately, as a result of the pandemic, the water consumption rates in the community are believed to not be a clear representation of normal circumstances. As a result Council will not consider a change in the tax fee for those on water meters until they are comfortable with the data and subsequent analysis. Those who have volunteered for the water meters will receive an update in the coming months.
Update: January 13th, 2021
The initial scope of work of the Water Loss and Conservation Program has now been completed. We are currently monitoring and collecting data on those who volunteered to receive water meters. We are continuing our leak detection program and we encourage residents to reduce their water consumption wherever they can.
If you are interested in receiving a water meter please contact [email protected] for future installation information.
The Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s Town Council is committed to reducing the cost burden associated with water to our residents through a comprehensive Water Loss and Conservation Program that starts with our operations, infrastructure, and planning. The Town Council will take the lead on reducing these costs through leak detection, infrastructure upgrades, data collection, and providing voluntary water meters to residents.
By requesting a voluntary residential or commercial water meter, you can help us collect valuable data that supports the Water Loss and Conservation Program, while potentially reducing your household cost of water in the future.
