Water Utility Bills
Water Utility bills are sent out to customers every three months (quarterly); in January, April, July and October. These invoices include base rate and consumption charges for both water and sewer. The base rates are based on a 90 day cycle and will vary slightly if the billing cycle is less or more than 90 days. The consumption charges are based upon the read received from your water meter.
Water Utility bills are due 30 days after the billing date. After 30 days, shut off notices are sent to those accounts which remain unpaid and interest will start accruing. If a utility bill is still not paid after 40 days from the billing date, a suspension of service (water shutoff) and a $50 charge may apply.
If you are a new resident to the Region of Windsor and West Hants, or are moving to a new location within the Region, please ensure that you complete a new water contract. Upon signing a new water contract, there is a $ 100.00 deposit due, which will remain on your account. Additionally, on your first billing there is a one time $ 50.00 administration fee.
If you are moving or need your water services temporarily disconnected, please ensure that you contact us at least 48 hours in advance to allow for time to arrange the appointment.
Should you have any questions about your billing or if you have not received a utility bill please contact our Water Utility Clerk, Cathy Curry at 902-798-8391 ext.107.
We have many different payment options available. (Learn more).
