Frequently Asked Questions

How much is a utility bill?

The total cost of your utility bill depends on water consumption. In addition to the consumption charges there are also fixed charges.

  • Water fixed charge: $93 (0 to 30 cubic meters) per quarter;
  • Consumption rate: $3.10 per cubic meter for usage above the initial 30 cubic meters (per quarter);
  • Sewer fixed charge: $38.19 per quarter;
  • OSS Roll-Out Waste Cart/Environmental Levy: $39.00 per quarter ;
  • OSS Roll-Out Recycle Cart: $21.00 per quarter.

How is your water bill calculated?

Your water meter measures the water consumed in cubic meters. The amount of water your residence or business consumes is multiplied by the current water and sewer rates.

Am I still charged if I don’t use any water?

There is a minimum cost charged to be able to supply water services to your property even if no water is actually used. This is the fixed charge for the water and sewer system.

If you are going to be absent from your residence for an extended period of time, the service can be disconnected at the curbstop and then reconnected upon your return. There is an associated cost with the disconnect and reconnect. Once the curbstop is shut off, you will not receive a bill for the fixed charges. Contact the Town Office for further information. 

Why did my water get disconnected?

If you have a utility billing in arrears, the Town of Springside may disconnect water at any time, without notice. If your water is disconnected for non-payment, the utility billing must be paid to current plus an additional $50 before it will be reconnected ($100 if the reconnection is required outside of regular business hours). 

We strongly encourage residents to keep in contact with the Town Office if they are having financial complications that do not allow them to pay their utilities in full. The Town Office is amenable to payment arrangements, and encourages residents to make monthly payments to keep accounts current to avoid any water service disruptions.
