3. The average volume of water withdrawn per day is calculated over a period of 90 consecutive days that constitutes the period of maximum water withdrawal.
The number of users supplied by a water withdrawal is calculated in accordance with Schedule 0.1 of the Regulation respecting the quality of drinking water (chapter Q-2, r. 40) on the basis of the system, establishment or place to which it is principally or exclusively connected.
In making the calculations, all the water withdrawals made at withdrawal sites connected to the same establishment, facility or waterworks system are deemed to constitute a single water withdrawal. The same applies to establish the maximum daily flow rate of a withdrawal subject to authorization pursuant to subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph of section 22 of the Environment Quality Act (chapter Q-2).
