Toronto Water

Water production reports

Toronto Water is responsible for collecting, treating and distributing quality drinking water to the entire City of Toronto as well as portions of York Region. Our sophisticated water treatment and supply system is made up of four treatment plants, 18 pumping stations, numerous elevated and underground reservoirs, over 5,500 kms of distribution watermains and much more.

This system, while comprehensive, is not limitless please be water wise. For tips on ways to be water efficient: Click Here.

Regardless of how it will be used, all water leaving the plants is clean and safe to drink, straight from the tap.

Daily production reports (the amount of clean drinking water demanded by residents and businesses for drinking, washing, flushing, industrial processes, and more) are provided here.
