Billed Water Consumption Report

Water use in Winnipeg has continued to decline since the peak in 1990. Usage has decreased by more than 29% from 88,330 million litres in 1990 to 62,357 million litres in 2013. Declining water use allows the City to maintain our abundant water supply and defer capital water infrastructure upgrades. If you are interested in slowing the flow please visit our water conservation page.
