Water & Sewer

Water and Sewer 

The City of Moncton provides quality drinking water to 124,050 people in Moncton, Dieppe and Riverview. The City is involved in every step — supply, treatment, monitoring, distributing, making repairs, collecting payments, and more — to provide the safest water quality for our residents.

The City of Moncton is committed to providing safe, clean and clear drinking water to its citizens. Continuous monitoring at the water treatment facility and regular testing at 32 sites ensure that our water surpasses Health Canada's Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality. The high quality of Moncton’s drinking water was recognized by Molson when they decided to locate their brewery here.  

 

Water Meter Replacement Program

The City of Moncton is undertaking a phased 10-year project to replace aging residential water meters and water meter transmitting units (MTU). This program is designed to upgrade the technology for approximately 18,000 water meters and MTU's. Info

 

Sewer Flushing Program

The City of Moncton conducts sanitary sewer flushing yearly as part of preventative maintenance operations to remove debris, sand and gravel that have accumulated in the sanitary system. Although instances are rare, there is a possibility that the pressure from sewer flushing operations can create a vacuum and blow back water through home fixtures, such as toilets. We recommend that you keep your toilets flushed and the seat cover down to minimize any potential back spray. If you experience blowback, please contact the Public Works Division at 859-2643.

 

Water in the World

  • About 1.1 billion people in developing countries (more than three times the population of the USA and Canada combined) do not have access to safe, plentiful drinking water. 
  • Canadians, on average, use 340 litres of water per day in their household. That is more than twice the European average. Water-efficient appliances and fixtures help reduce this daily consumption.
  • Only one per cent of all the water on the planet is suitable for human consumption. About 97 per cent of the earth’s water is salt water.
  • Less than 1 per cent of the treated drinking water produced by utilities is actually consumed by people. Most goes for toilet flushing, laundry, dishwashing, baths and showers, and lawn watering. 
  • Water is constantly recycled: water that is on the earth now is the same water that was here when dinosaurs roamed the land.
