Water Utility: Customer services and water rates

Water customer rates

Water utility rates and service charges are set at the lowest amount possible to deliver current services.

The rates also provide enough funding to expand, upgrade, maintain and repair our water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure.

The City of Calgary water utility does not receive funding from property taxes.

Questions about rates?

Find details on rates and service charges below. For more information on how The City sets rates and service charges, see our Water Utility Rates FAQ.
