water and sewer rates and charges, effective April 1, 2009.

Single-Family Dwellings (Unmetered Customers)
Annual rates for residential water service will increase from $194.60 to
$379.47 per unit per year and sewer rates will increase from $124.48 to
$392.11 per unit per year. The combined annual flat rate for residential
customers who receive both services will increase from $319.08 to $771.58.
The Utility is proposing similar increases in metered rates; however, the
impact varies depending on the type and size of the metered service and the
amount of a customer’s annual consumption.
For example, if approved,
a 3/4" metered water customer consuming 500 cubic metres per year would see
an increase in rates from $303.60 to $591.52. Metered sewer rates would
increase from $192.52 to $608.20. The impact of the services combined would
see the rates go from roughly $496 to $1,210 per year.
