For consumption of fifteen (15) cubic meters or less, the minimum charge will apply. For consumption greater than fifteen (15) cubic meters, the quarterly charge will be the fixed rate plus the consumption rate.
The consumption per meter rate will be charged based on the measured quantity of water consumption in the first billing period of the year (approximately January to March). This volume will be multiplied by the consumption rate for each and every quarter.
In addition to the charges above, all non-metered customers will be charged a flat rate of $94.10 per quarter, per unit.

Recognizing that connecting to the municipal sewer system can be costly, and yet wanting to encourage residents to connect, Council has passed Sewer Financing Bylaw No. 1485. This will allow you to connect to the sewer at this time, and pay the total costs of the connection over a period of 5, 10 or 15 years.
