2014 Water & Sewer Rates Study

Loyalist Township is moving towards harmonized water and sewer rates for all communities.

The Township hopes to balance the need for sustainable revenues with the need to encourage users to practice water conservation.  Conservation efforts by system users has helped to defer the need to expand the Township's treatment facilities.

The latest evaluation on proposed water and sewer rates recommended an 8% rate increase for the communities of Amherstview, Odessa, Harewood and Brooklands. Bath water and sewer rates are already higher and will not increase at this time.

Loyalist Township hosted an Open House on November 18, 2014 at the Municipal Office in Odessa. A presentation was made with respect to the possible billing options regarding fixed and consumption based bills, explaining why a rate increase is being recommended at this time.

The presentation is available for viewing, below:
