Water and Wastewater Rates

Springwater's Municipal Water and Wastewater Systems are regulated by by-law which establishes water and wastewater rates within the Township of Springwater.

The water and wastewater rates that are charged to the users consist of two components:

  1. Fixed Charges – to ensure funds are recovered for the infrastructure assets used in the distribution and transmission of water and wastewater along with any debt financing repayments that may be incurred.
  2. Consumption Charges – these are variable charges calculated based on the cubic meter consumed. The variable charges ensure annual operating costs for staff, distribution, maintenance and administration are properly funded.
