Understand Your Utility Bill

The City of Regina's water and sewer budget operates on a full cost-recovery, user-pay basis. Utility rates fund investment in the safe operations of our water and sewer system.

In order to maintain and improve our utility infrastructure, all customers pay a daily base charge for water, sewer and drainage, plus a charge for actual consumption. The daily base charge for water and sewer is dependent on the size of the meter installed in the home. For a standard residential home with a 5/8 or 3/4 inch meter, your 2017 daily base rates would be as follows:

  • $0.79 per day for Water
  • $0.61 per day for Sewer
  • $0.52 per day for Drainage
