Continue to monitor your water consumption patterns and be aware of the potential for leaks. Outside leaks can go undetected for long periods of time and a running toilet may consume several cubic meters of water. This can result in a large water bill. Township policy does not provide reductions to water bills due to leaks. The property owner is responsible for all water that is calculated by the water meter.
Please ensure that your water pipes and meter are protected from freezing. The property owner is responsible for all parts of the system on private property which is beyond the curb stop/shut off valve.
New Water Rates effective May 15, 2020
$1.87 per cubic meter
$45.50 Administration fee per billing
.30 cents per cubic meter for hydro for customers in the LaSalle pump station area
$118.00 sewer charge per billing for customers in Oil City
Water Bills due dates in 2020: February 28, June 30 and October 30, 2020.
