Residential multi-family water rates


Multi-family customers are citizens who live in a complex like apartments, condos, townhouses or any building with more than two units physically attached.

Each multi-family building is metered differently. Some complexes may have a designated meter, such as a townhouse. Other complexes may have all water flow through one large meter for the property, such as an apartment building.

If you live in a house, semi-detached home or duplex, you are a residential customer.

Water accounts and billing inquiries

If you live in a multi-family complex you may have:

  • A water meter for your unit;
  • A meter on a meter tree located in a neighbouring unit; or
  • The complex has one meter for all units which is under the responsibility of a property manager

If you are unclear about which services are your responsibility:

Please review your monthly ENMAX bill or contact ENMAX billing and customer care for clarification.

Alternatively, your monthly water utility charges may be included in your monthly condo/property fees. Please contact your condominium or management company if you have questions

The City of Calgary contracts ENMAX to provide billing and customer care for Calgary municipal services including water. For questions about your bill, please contact the ENMAX Customer Care Centre.

How to read your water bill

Water, wastewater, drainage and waste and recycling charges are calculated by the number of days on your ENMAX bill. The number of days billed can vary, however it is typically 28-30 days of service.
