How to set up a new utility account

To set up a new utility account for the above services, please contact ENMAX at 310-2010.

What you need to know about your water account

Water Meters
New accounts will be automatically set up with a water meter. Accounts being moved from one address to another will be set up as metered accounts, regardless of whether they were previously flat-rate or metered accounts at the old address.

Please note: If you do not have a water meter you may be required to have one installed. Both the water meter and installation are free of charge.

Deposits
Residential customers who have not had an account with The City of Calgary for 12 months or whose payment record is not satisfactory may be required to provide a deposit. Commercial customers who have not had an account for 24 months or more are subject to the same conditions.

Account access
Only the person whose name is on the account can make account changes and inquiries. No changes can be made on behalf of another person or business.

You may add someone (i.e., a roommate, a spouse, business partner, etc.) to your account. Once the name is on the account that person may make inquiries.

It is beneficial if the person you add to your account is also the person you would like to have listed as an alternate contact, to be contacted if an urgent situation or emergency should occur.

Application fee
All new accounts will be subject to a $10.00 application fee.

Billing
Accounts are billed on a monthly basis and statement can be received by mail or email. Customers are responsible for:

  • Providing and maintaining current and accurate information with ENMAX
  • Paying any amounts due, even if a statement has not been received
  • Reviewing the account and bill for accuracy

Effective Oct. 1, 2017, if you experience abnormal water consumption and receive a higher than normal bill (equal to or greater than 3x your seasonal, average bill), you may be eligible for an adjustment.

To determine eligibility requirements, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Moving
Visit ENMAX, or call 310-2010 within 45 days of your new move date to review your account and ensure your services have been set-up properly and ensure you are being billed correctly.

I have not received a bill or have lost my bill
If you have not received your monthly bill, please visit ENMAX or call 310-2010 as soon as possible to avoid late payment fees.

Please note: Failure to receive or loss of the utility statement cannot be accepted as a valid reason for non-payment or for exemption from late payment penalties.
