The water and wastewater rates that are charged to the users on a quarterly basis consist of two components:
- Fixed Water/Sewer Maintenance Charges - ensure a base level of funding is available to support life cycle maintenance of infrastructure assets used in the distribution and transmission of water and collection of wastewater, as well as related long-term debt servicing costs incurred.
- Variable Water/Sewer Use charges - are calculated on the basis of water consumption in cubic meters. The variable charges ensure annual operating costs for personnel (internal and contractors), water supply/distribution, wastewater collection/treatment, and general administration are appropriately funded.
