Watch Your Water Bill for the New Water Rate Structure

Article Summary: 

The blog discusses the new water rate structure in Ottawa, which includes fixed costs to reflect maintenance and introduces four tiers based on consumption rates. However, condominium corporations may be unfairly impacted as they will likely be charged at the highest rates. A more reasonable approach for condos would be to base the tier on the bulk amount divided by the number of units. Condos are advised to keep an eye on their water bills to ensure the new system is fair.
