Why is Water Conservation Important in Our Province?

According to Environment Canada’s 2011 Municipal Water Use Report, Newfoundlanders and Labradorians use the most water per capita in Canada. It’s our responsibility to do our part whenever possible and be more aware of our daily water consumption. Conserving water doesn’t have to be a big inconvenience! Other provinces in Canada use considerably less water than here in NL.
