Vision 2021: One city. One water system. One rate.
2018 to 2021 Water Rate Increases
Creating a Sustainable System
West Kelowna Council has adopted new water rates as of November 28, 2017, with the first of four consecutive annual increases taking effect January 1, 2018, with levies to be charged quarterly. Subsequent annual rate increases will occur on January 1, 2019, 2020 and 2021.
The average household's quarterly bill will be as follows:
Pritchard, Sunnyside and West Kelowna Estates
Please note: Amounts shown above include: the flat rate, which is made up of the capital contribution, debt repayment and operating fees; plus, a consumption rate based on metered usage. Those who consume less water will find their charges lower than what's shown; those that consume more will see higher bills. For conservation tips, please go to www.makewaterwork.ca.
The increases are required to cover the costs of system operations, maintenance and improvements and to ensure the system remains sustainable. The rates also cover the costs to repay the debts incurred to build both the Powers Creek and Rose Valley Water Treatment Plants.
