La Patrouille bleue: an initiative of Ville de Montréal's Service de l'eau
Initiated in spring 2019, As-tu ta pomme de douche program, a drinking water and energy saving project, has begun thanks to the collaboration of Hydro-Québec, which offered several hundred Water Sense® low-flow shower heads, and the Regroupement des éco-quartiers.
The project involves exchanging for free your old shower head for a new one with reduced flow. By doing this, you save on average 10,000 liters of water per person, saving up to $60 per year.
In 2020, the program is extending to the following territories : Hochelaga, Saint-Michel, Centre-Sud, Parc-Extension, Montréal-Nord, Pointe-Saint-Charles et Côte-des-Neiges. For more information on the exchange program, visit the Éco-quartier website (in French).
