Mr. Speaker, the City of Beaconsfield, in my riding of Lac-Saint-Louis, recently received the Municipalité Écon’eau attestation from Reseau Environnement for its ambitious efforts in the area of water conservation. This attestation recognizes the city’s infrastructure-leak-detection program, its efforts to raise awareness about drinking water conservation and the quality of the information on the water section of the city’s website.
Beaconsfield’s drinking water consumption continues to drop year after year. The replacement of underground infrastructure, financed in part by the New Building Canada fund, has made the city’s water supply system more efficient.
Congratulations to Mayor Georges Bourelle; Councillor Karen Messier, the environmental conscience of the city; and all council members for their leadership in helping to protect Canada’s most vital resource: water.
