CUI rates are approved by the City of Chestermere Council and are established to ensure we’re able to operate in a safe and reliable manner and, over time, achieve the financial sustainability measures as set out in the CUI Mandate and Regulatory Framework approved by Council on November 21, 2016.

The following tables outline the rates and fees currently in effect for residential and non-residential customers. To provide transparency on the costs associated with safely distributing water to Chestermere, CUI has adopted a full cost accounting, or utility approach, for setting customer rates. Please refer to the City of Chestermere Bylaws 029-13, 026-13, 031-16, 008-15, 030-16, 027-13, 011-16, 025-13, and 032-16 for more details pertaining to rates and the provision of safe and efficient water, wastewater, stormwater, solid waste and recycle services to residents and businesses located in Chestermere, Alberta.
