St. John's has some of the best water in the world, and treated water from Windsor Lake is either pumped or gravity-fed to homes or businesses in the east end and downtown areas of St. John’s.
Beautiful, clean water flows from Windsor Lake at a rate of 70,000 cubic metres per day in the summer and 53,500 cubic metres per day in the winter.

The difference over the seasons is due to changes in water as it gets colder, and it sure does get chilly in the winter months!
