WELL WATER ANALYSIS

Come and have your surface well, artesian well or your driven well water analyzed. The Municipality has negotiated a group rate that will be available on May 12th only.  

These analyses let you test the quality of the underground water you use.  The ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement, de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques (MDDELCC) recommends a regular analysis,  twice a year, in the spring and fall. As the owner of an individual well, it is your responsibility to ensure its quality so as to protect your health and your family’s as well.

  • You can pick up the sampling bottles at Town Hall, from April 23rd to May 11th and during the Environment Day event at Collège Champagneur on May 12th.
  • With your bottle, you will receive an analysis request form to be filled out as well as instructions on how to collect your water sample.
  • You must return the sampling bottle filled with your tap water, on May 12th by 2 pm, to the Municipality of Rawdon’s booth (during the Environment Day activities at Collège Champagneur). Also, payment will have to be made on site, in cash or by cheque only.

Laboratoire H2 Lab will inform you on the analysis turn-around time and the significance of the results. The following is their contact information:

WATER CONSERVATION KITS

 

 

 

 

 

 

During the Environment Day event, the Municipality will be offering water conservation kits (free of charge) to citizens whose homes are connected to the municipal aqueduct.

This tool will allow citizens to reduce their water consumption in the bathroom (40% less water used) without compromising on their comfort.  It will also save up to $100 of electricity per year (based on a family of 4).  The products are Watersense approved.

Each kit includes a shower head (fixed or hand-held), a bathroom and kitchen faucet aerator, a Teflon tube, a shower timer as well as instructions.

You can obtain a kit at the Town Hall reception desk or the Municipality’s booth during the Environment Day event, on May 12th 2018 at Collège Champagneur.
