It costs “only eight cents [to take] one KWH of electricity for each cubic metre of water drawn from Lake Ontario, purified, pumped to consumers, removed, run through a sewage treatment plant [to Toronto]. 01

Sounds like a deal, doesn’t it? Until you consider that Toronto used 374 million cubic metres last year.” 01

The numbers may be different here in London, but the conclusion is comparable. Use less water. It will save you money. It will also help to cut greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generation.
