Paying your bill
The Region of Peel continues to maintain the lowest combined water and wastewater rates in the Greater Toronto Area. The Region's water and wastewater operations continue to be debt-free. That means your water and wastewater rates pay for services used, not interest on debt.
Water bills issued on or after April 1, 2016 will have a water rate increase of 9.4 per cent. The wastewater rate will increase 8.7 per cent. The rate increase works out to an additional $47 per year for an average household* with both water and wastewater services.

Water rates – a snapshot
Customers with an average monthly consumption of more than 455 m3 (100,000 gallons) are billed monthly. All other accounts are billed quarterly. For residential customers connected to the wastewater system with metered water service, the wastewater rate is applied to 85 per cent of total metered water usage. This recognizes activities such as lawn watering and swimming pool maintenance where water is not returned to the wastewater system.
To ensure the accuracy of your bill, please review the services that are charged to your account regarding your water and wastewater use. In addition to the regular water and wastewater rates, the Region also charges for related specific services.
