From July until September 30, a representative of the City of Montreal will travel around Beaconsfield and other West Island neighbourhoods to take samples of drinking water directly from the tap (of residences). This person will have an official identification card, a vehicle and a shirt with the City of Montreal logo and will visit homes to take samples. 

The by-law on the quality of drinking water requires municipalities to take annual samples of the drinking water in their distribution networks, from residents who agree to participate. The samples are then analyzed in the laboratory and the results are sent to the Ministry of the Environment (MDDELCC). Citizens who participated in this campaign will receive a letter with the official results from the City of Montreal's laboratory in the fall of 2022.
