Water Meter Rates

How Rates are Structured

The residential metered rate is the total of the following three charges:

  1. Fixed Capital charge
    This covers the cost of the infrastructure, (including the water treatment plant, pump stations and pipes, etc.) and is based on the size of the service to the property.

    This is an annual cost and will be billed quarterly. The annual charge for an average home owner with a ¾ inch service is $242.30, or $60.58 per quarter.
  2. Fixed Consumption charge
    This provides an allotment of water to your home at a fixed price and currently allows for 45m³ in winter and fall with 90m³ allotted for spring and summer to meet irrigation/watering demands. The annual charge is $136.67, or $34.17 per quarter.
  3. Variable Consumption charge
    This covers excess water use over and above the fixed allotment as noted in the Fixed Consumption charge.

Summer Billing Sample

The full breakdown of all service sizes, charges, variable consumption rates, etc. can be found in the City's Waterworks Bylaw No. 12-31.

Note: 1m³ = 1,000 Litres
