Utility Rates

How do we calculate your utility bill?

  1. Water Maintenance Levy - flat monthly rate: funds operational costs of the potable treated water distribution system and capital expenditures for rehabilitation of the existing system. A service charge for the cost and maintenance of your water meter including reading of meter and issuing your monthly bill.
  2. Water Levy - variable water consumption charge: This charge is based on the amount of water used by you during the month. The variable components provide an incentive cor users to conserve (lower consumption = lower utility invoice). The water consumption is measured in cubic meters. One cubic meter (1m3) is equal to 1000 liters.
  3. Water Conveyance Levy - flat monthly rate: A service charge for maintaining the East Regional Waterline which brings potable water from Calgary to the Town.
  4. Sewer Levy - flat monthly rate & variable charge: The flat rate charge funds the operational costs of tertiary waste water treatment. The variable charge is the amount of waste water produced which is determined from the amount of water consumed.
  5. Garbage Levy - flat monthly rate: A charge for residential solid waste collection and heavy item garbage removal.
