Water and Sewer Billings
The water and sewer rates are billed to the residences and businesses with the hydro bill that comes from Orangeville Hydro. The water meters, on which the charges are based, are read at the same time as the hydro meters are read.
There are two parts to each charge; a fixed monthly charge which covers the administrative and other fixed costs to provide the service and a per cubic metre charge which covers the operating, maintenance, and infrastructure replacement costs.
The hydro bills show the amount of water that was used during the billing period. People are encouraged to monitor their consumption using this information, and look for ways to reduce the use and thereby minimize their costs.
