Utility Rates

Understanding Your Utility Bill - Residential Perspective

The Town of Strathmore's Utility Bills are changing in 2022. Charges are being itemized to provide greater transparency. New reserve fund fees have been implemented to support the long-term sustainability of Strathmore's Utility Infrastructure. 

Garbage Levy  - Most residential properties are charged a set fee of $24.09 per property for solid waste collection and heavy item garbage removal. 

Sewer Levy - The Sewer Levy is charged based on the volume of water consumed. The Sewer Levy has been part of Strathmore's Utility Bill for many years, but was previously not itemized on Utility Bills. In January 2020, this fee was itemized to provide greater clarity for utility customers. The levy is calculated at $2.13 per cubic metre, based on the meter water delivered.

Sewer & Storm Sewer & Reserve - Strathmore's properties are protected by a well-engineered storm sewer system. Our sanitary sewer system ensures the efficient, responsible treatment of wastewater. Most residents are charged a set fee of $37.33. 

Water Levy - Residents are billed a  consumption charge of 0-29 cubes at $2.73 and + 30 cubes is billed at a rate of $ 2.77. This variable rate encourages water conservation by utility customers.
