Keep track of your water use and learn how to save this summer

With the warm weather here, residents are reminded that they can track their water use online with MyWaterToronto, a new tool from the City of Toronto that allows customers to view their water use by day, week, month or year.

Customers can assess the tool by visiting and entering their utility account information. In addition to viewing how much water is used at different times, customers can check a box to add in details such as temperature and precipitation to better understand their water use.

The average household uses approximately 765 litres of water per day. Customers using more than that may wish to look at their water use behaviour, as well as the appliances and fixtures in their home. Prolonged and increased water use can also mean you may have a leak. For tips on how to save water at home, in the garden and at work, visit
