The revised 2022 water and sewer rates were adopted by Council on Dec. 1, 2021. The rate change represents a 5.84 per cent increase when factoring in both metered and capital charges over 2021 rates and is in effect for billings as of April 1.

This increase ensures revenue is provided for the operating expenditures for the water and sewer systems. In addition to the metered consumption rate, a capital cost recovery fee of $21.94 is included with each water and sewer bill. This fee is set aside for future capital expenditures for both the water and sewer systems.
