|Water Consumption - Tier 1||0-23 cubic metres||$1.55/m3|
Water Consumption - Tier 2
24-46 cubic metres*
|Water Consumption - Tier 3||46+ cubic metres*|

|Sanitary Sewer||Base Rate||$18.50|
|Sanitary Sewer Generation*||per cubic metre||$2.25/m3|
|Storm Sewer Fixed Rate||Mandatory charge||$13.85|
Please note the following charges will be applied to individual dwelling units without a meter:
- Consumption charges (where water meter is not registering accurately or home is without a meter) :
- Water: $110.00 per billing period
- Sewer: $100.00 per billing period
- Manual water meter reading fee: of $17.50 per billing period (for residents who chose not to have a Smart Meter System installed in their household)
*Water used for irrigation purposes will be exempt from the sewer consumption charge on the condition that a separate water meter that measures only irrigation water must be installed and approved as per the Town’s specifications (for multi unit only).
