Water Rates

Vision 2021: One city. One water system. One rate.



Our January 2018 Newsletter outlines what the new rates mean to you and the quality of the water you receive, and to give conservation tips to lower the use portion of your bill:


New charges began January 1, 2018 and will first appear on the April bill, for January 1 through March 31.

Consecutive annual increases will take effect January 1, 2019, 2020 and 2021 (charged quarterly).

The average household's quarterly bill in 2018 will be approximately:

 System  2017  2018  2019  2020  2021
Lakeview  $90 Rose
Valley 
*$158
 $181  $204  West
Kelowna
$227
Pritchard, Sunnyside and West Kelowna Estates
 $110
Westbank  $153  Powers
Creek
*$183
 $198  $209

Amounts above include the flat rate (capital contribution, debt repayment and operating fees) and a consumption rate based on metered use. If you consume less, you'll find charges lower; if you use more you'll see higher amounts. Get conservation tips at www.makewaterwork.ca.
