Hamilton Water is responsible for the treatment and distribution of clean, safe drinking water across the city, and the collection and treatment of wastewater and storm water. Water is distributed to urban areas by pumping water from Lake Ontario or from municipal wells, through a central water distribution system to residential homes and businesses. The water distribution system includes approximately 2,075 kilometres of water mains, 13,073 fire hydrants, 20,860 water valves and 150,000 service connections.

Built Environment & Infrastructure
Hamilton Water provides effective and efficient responses to maintain and restore water and wastewater infrastructure across the city.
DATA NOTE: The Citizen Dashboard is in the process of being converted into an Open Data format, linking the Citizen Dashboard with Open Hamilton. During this conversion, the data on the Citizen Dashboard will not be updated quarterly, resulting in some data being out of date. The conversion is underway and is expected to be fully completed by June 2019.
