Strata-Residential Water Rate Calculator

Current water rates have a fixed infrastructure charge of $96.05 plus a consumption charge which varies with usage. This fee structure equalizes costs for residential and commercial customers.

Water rate calculators have been provided so that you can estimate your water rates. Four separate calculators have been provided for residential, strata-residential and commercial and large family rate along with instructions on how to use the calculators.

How to use the calculator to estimate your water charges:

  1. Begin by finding a recent utility bill (you may wish to use both March and
    September consumptions to estimate your winter and summer charges).
  2. Look for the consumption amount in cubic metres ( m3 ) on the statement.
  3. Enter the number of residential units and the water usage amount in the calculator below.
  4. Click on the Calculate button to see the results.
  5. Click on the Clear Fields button to reset the form for more calculation estimates.

Please Note: This rate calculator is for the water charge only. Sewer charges will also be included on your semi-annual utility bill.
