Water Management

Annual review of the quality of drinking water

Every year, by March 31, the Town of Sutton submits its report on drinking water quality for the period from January 1 - December 31 of the previous year.

This year, our water again meets all the government requirements governing drinking water quality. See below for the data on the drinking water distribution systems for the mountain and town sectors, and the spring on Highway 215.

Cleaning the Aqueduct System

The Town of Sutton will be cleaning the aqueduct system between April 30 and June 15, 2019. This operation can cause the water to look temporarily cloudy or yellowish. If this happens, run the (cold) water in your tub or sink before using until it becomes clear again. We apologize for any potential inconvenience.

Water meters

Sutton is in the process of installing residential water meters. The goal of the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) is to have 60 water meters installed by September 1, 2019. The purpose of this program is to obtain residential consumption data and diminish waste. It’s important to note that this program will allow us to obtain government subsidies for the improvement or replacement of the town’s water infrastructure. The participation of our citizens is encouraged. If you are interested, please contact the Public Works Department at (450) 538-2290.
