Groundwater Follow-up

The City of Lachute is continuing its work to ensure citizens an effective, safe drinking water supply. As planned, certain parameters attributable to hardness are gradually diminishing. As these parameters are stabilizing, the City agreed that it was now appropriate to examine all possible options to further decrease water hardness.

To that end, at its March 2014 meeting, City Council contracted the professional services of consulting firm Beaudoin Hurens to prepare a study report on the technology and costs involved in treating the hardness, iron and manganese in our groundwater. Armed with this report, the City will have the tools it needs to make an informed decision about the course of action to be taken.

Note also that the City is constantly striving to improve the situation, as evidenced by the closing of wells showing higher hardness levels than other wells while still meeting the drinking water quality standards established by the Ministère de l’Environnement.

As you can see, the City remains focused on continuously improving the quality of the drinking water it distributes.
