Peel’s urban water treatment facilities
Together, our Arthur P. Kennedy and Lorne Park Water Treatment facilities process over 1.6 billion litres of water each day.
Your home receives the highest quality drinking water each time you turn on your tap.
Treating water is the first step.
Peel Region owns the Arthur P. Kennedy and Lorne Park Water Treatment facilities.
- Provide drinking water to Brampton and Mississauga and to parts of the Town of Caledon and York Region.
- Are located on the shore of Lake Ontario.
- Are operated by the Ontario Clean Water Agency on behalf of Peel Region.
York Region lacks direct access to a water supply from Lake Ontario and they rely on water purchased from their neighbouring well-based municipalities. Much of their current water supply comes from the City of Toronto, groundwater systems and portion from Peel Region supply, from the South Peel Drinking Water System.
The water supply from Peel will help to supplement York to meet their future needs up to 2031.
