All Montreal West homes are equipped with a water meter and the Town issues bills for water tax based on consumption. Every year, a letter is sent to residents reminding them that their meter readings must be submitted in September. Water tax bills are then mailed out in October and are due in November.
The rate for 2019 is $29.30/1000 cubic feet.
In order to ensure the accurate billing of your water consumption, it is important that your meter reading be submitted to us by September 23rd, 2019.
You may submit your reading to us by any of the following means:
In the absence of a reply, water tax bills are based on an estimated usage and a non refundable $50 fee is added to the bill.
Should you be unable to read your meter, contact the Public Works department.
The water tax bill for the past year is payable by the current owner, even when there is a property transfer. Therefore, we strongly recommend that your notary ensures that an adjustment calculation is made for water consumption up to the sale date. Your notary should already have contacted us for this information.
New this year! You can now submit your reading online by filling out the form below. You can also include a photograph of your meter.
