It is important to remember that, in order to be registered on the voters list as the owner of an immovable or the occupant of a business establishment or as co-owners or co-occupants of a business establishment in the Town of Baie-D’Urfé, one must have the status of voter.

Residents may experience a slight discoloration of their water in the spring and fall when a routine flushing of the water network is conducted. The “rusty” colour is attributed to a kick up of sediment in the pipes due to a fluctuation in pressure. While not harmful to drink, it is recommended to let the water run until it becomes clear. Please advise the Public Works department at 514 457-2877 should it persist.
