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.

How to submit your reading

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:

  • Online, by completing the electronic form below.
  • By mail, by completing the card that was mailed to you.
  • By dropping the completed card off directly at the Town Hall (cards may be left in the mailboxes located at the front or side door after business hours).
  • By phone, by calling 514-485-8941 (if calling after hours, please state your name, address, telephone number, meter reading and meter serial number).

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.

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.
