This means that tenants will no longer receive these bills in their mail. Please contact the TNRD if you have questions or require more information.

How To Calculate Your Water Bill
- Look at your Service code on your mock bill, which refers to your Community Water System and the meter line size installed into your house.
- Look at the Current Reading compared to the Previous Reading to calculate consumption in that quarter.
- Determine the total consumption cost by using the following formula:
- (Consumption amount * consumption rate) + Base rate = Total bill amount

How Water Rates Are Set
Water rates and other fees are established through Bylaw 2757. This bylaw includes metered rates for the mock billing phase and for actual billing, after the mock billing phase ends. Metered rates include a base rate and consumption rate for each Community Water System. Below, you can view Bylaw 2757, which shows base rates and consumption rates for all TNRD Community Water Systems.
