Urban Water Indicators: Municipal Water Use and Wastewater Treatment

Canadians are among the highest water users in the world. Though Canada is perceived as a country with abundant water resources, about 60% of this water supply flows north and is not readily available or easily accessed where it is needed most?in a narrow 300-kilometre band along Canada?s southern border, home to over 84% of the population. Eleven percent of all surface water and groundwater withdrawn in Canada is used for municipal purposes.
