All Montreal West homes are equipped with a water meter and the Town issues bills for water tax based on consumption. Water readings must be submitted every September. In the absence of a reply, water tax bills are based on estimated usage and a $50 fee is charged to the citizen.

  • Water tax bills are mailed out in October and are generally due in November. 
  • The rate for 2018 is $29.30/1000 cubic feet

In the case of a property transfer

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.

Submit your water reading online

Please fill in the line below with the reading found under the water meter cover and submit it by September 23, 2019. In the absence of a reply, water tax bills are based on 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.

You can also submit your reading by returning the completed card to Town Hall, emailing dmarza@montreal-west.ca or calling 514-485-8941. Make sure you include your name, address and meter reading.
