Your rates are changing

New water and wastewater rates take effect January 1, 2016.

Your new rates depend on where you live and the water or wastewater system needs of your community. Select your water system from the drop down below to learn more about your water rates.

How rates are set

The County worked with Hemson Consulting Ltd. to set water and wastewater rates for the 2014-2016 period. Water and wastewater are determined separately for each community and are set to fully cover the costs of running that system.

Public consultation is a key part of the rate-setting process. Consultation for 2014-2016 rates included a public meeting on September 25, 2013, a presentation to the business community, and an online "town hall" to accept comments, which was promoted through local media and advertising.

The 2014-2016 water and wastewater rates were approved by Council on November 13, 2013. Read the Council report
