Water Rates 2018

As many local citizens are aware, the Town of Magrath receives its water from the inter-municipal Magrath and District Regional Water Services Commission which was established in 2012. Each year the Commission charges the Town a fixed amount based on the annually-adjusted cost of producing this high quality water from our recently upgraded treatment facilities. The Commission’s price also includes the projected replacement and upgrade costs of our inter-municipal water treatment facilities in 15 to 20 years. In 2017 the Town charged $1.20 per cubic meter (the equivalent of 220 imperial gallons) to its residential customers for this water. In 2018 Council approved a new rate of $1.30 to cover a 9 cent per cubic meter adjusted increase from the Commission. This additional cost helps cover the maintenance cost of the Town’s potable water distribution system. This includes losses from line breakage and leaks which are frequently being repaired as part of our regular monitoring and maintenance activities. If you have questions about any aspect of this they can be addressed at the Town office.
