Safe, clean drinking water is a vital resource for everyone who lives, works in and visits Toronto. To ensure an uninterrupted supply, Toronto Water staff manage four water treatment plants plus pumping stations, underground reservoirs, elevated tanks and hundreds of kilometers of watermains. The collective aim is to distribute superior quality water to the community in a reliable, cost-effective and environmentally sound manner.
The City of Toronto maintains 22 major pumping facilities, working to achieve optimal water pressure.
Toronto's water is kept in a variety of storage facilities, including plant, ground and above ground reservoirs.
