Check Your Water Usage--New Tool

The City of Toronto has implemented a convenient new tool that allows residents to view their water usage information anytime, anywhere, from your mobile device or computer. Log-on to MyWaterToronto and view your total and average water use by day, week, month or year in an easy-to-read graph or chart format.

Check the boxes to add in extra details, such as temperature and precipitation, to better understand why you may have used more or less water during a particular time period. MyWaterToronto will help you to identify water leaks and become more aware of your water use habits, helping to encourage water conservation.

MyWaterToronto is also linked to the City’s Utility Account Lookup, which allows you to view your utility account information and details of your billings. You must have an automated water meter installed to use MyWaterToronto. Please note that MyWaterToronto is a summary of your historical water use and may not reflect recent use. MyWaterToronto is not an official record and should only be used as a guideline.

Fairfield Park Update March 2016 - New Winter Water Service

Councillor Di Ciano supports a natural ice rink for Fairfield Park and has secured Section 37 funds for this project. Once the funds have been received we will advise. Only then can staff provide an estimated install date.

New City of Toronto website allows residents to see when streets get plowed and salted

The City of Toronto has created a webpage that enables residents to see the location of plows, sidewalk plows and salt trucks and when their street was serviced by the City's winter operations crews. 

The new webpage uses a Global Positioning System (GPS) installed on plows and salt trucks to determine when a road was serviced by using a colour coded system. If a road was serviced within the last four hours, the road will be shown with a green line. If a road was serviced within the last four to 12 hours, the road will be shown with a blue line and if serviced between 12 to 24 hours, the road will be coloured red. The webpage is available at http://www.toronto.ca/plowTO.

At this time, information on exactly when plows or salt trucks will service specific streets is not available. Varying amounts of snow received during any snow episode and potential route changes make it difficult to predict exactly when vehicles will attend to certain roads.

Some winter operations equipment including bus stop plows, hand crews and supervisory and support vehicles is not displayed on the webpage. 

You can follow the City's winter operations activities through Twitter @TO_WinterOps.
