How to read your water meter

You recently received a written notice with your 2024 tax bill about your water meter reading. It’s now time to submit your reading to the Town.

The self-reporting period runs from February 2, 2024, through March 29, 2024.

Most water meters are located in the basement, near where the water service enters the property. To take the reading, flip open the cover on the meter face (if there is a cover) and record all the numbers you see.

For several years now, homeowners have been submitting their readings in the fall, with bills for excess water consumption sent out in May of the following year. The Town has modified the self-reporting period in order to shorten the timeframe between submission and billing, and to cut down on paper use.

Billing of excess water consumption

In accordance with section 6.3 of By-law 982 (Règlement 982 concernant l’imposition des taux de taxation et la tarification de différents services municipaux pour l’année 2024), excess water consumption will be billed in May 2024 at the following rates:

Excess of...Rate
40 000 imperial gallons$5.22 per 1,000 imperial gallons
48,038 US gallons$4.35 per 1,000 US gallons
181.8 cubic metres$1.1483 per cubic metre

Note: Since the Town has modified the meter reading period from the previous year, consumption for 2024 will be calculated pro rata for taxation purposes in order to maintain a 12-month billing cycle, in accordance with By-law 970, section 7.2.

Factors that impact water consumption

Homeowners should be aware that several water-guzzling systems and fixtures can have a major impact on overall consumption. These can include:

  • Leaking toilets
  • Dripping faucets
  • Outdoor watering/irrigation systems
  • Automatic pool water levellers

Remember — Being water-wise starts with you!
