Water services in the Town of Drumheller include the management and administration of both potable and waste water in our valley.

The pricing of water is calculated to cover costs and create a reserve for maintenance and infrastructure improvements. Water bills include both water use and sewage costs. Sewage is charged at 80% of whole year usage and not 100% because it is understood that not all water used goes through the sewer system and is used as drinking water; for example.

There is a base rate for water and sewer every month, the size of the water meter dictates the charge, most residential properties will be 28.19 per month. The rest of the bill is based on consumption, we measure the consumption in cubic meters. We read the water meter every month around the 30th . The consumption falls into two categories water and sewer.

Water is charged at $1.7029 per cubic meter

Sewer is charged at 80% consumption year round at $2.0619

For example if someone used 10 cubic meters of water they would be charged:

Base rate = $28.19

Water = $17.03 10 cubic meter

Sewer = $16.50 80% of 10 cubic meter = 8 cubic meter

The total for bill for 10 cubic meters of consumption would be $61.72.

To help you think what 10 cubic meters means, it is approximately:

20 hours of running the hosepipe,
100 baths
300 showers.
