Toronto’s water rates are under review |
| || ||
The City of Toronto is reviewing its water pricing structure and is seeking input from water consumers at five upcoming public meetings.
Currently, residents, industry and businesses are charged for the volume of water used, based on a seven-level pricing structure. In preparation for a final report in July to the Works Committee and City Council, Torontonians can comment on:
- Should businesses, industry and residents pay different water rates?
- How do we make water rates fair for all customers and still pay for all water-related services such as drinking water, sewage services and stormwater management?
- How do we keep water rates regionally competitive while still paying for our aging infrastructure and retaining jobs in the city?
- How can water efficiency lower your water bill?
