How is my Meter Read?
Consumption is read via RFID (radio-frequency identification) or a walking meter reader. A basic breakdown of charges can be found below:
Basic Water Service Charge
The service charge on your water bill is for the cost and maintenance of your water meter, as well as the cost of reading the meter and issuing your bill.
Water Consumption Charges
This charge is based on the amount of water you use during the billing period. It includes the cost of drawing the water from the Bow River, treating, pumping and delivering the water from the City of Calgary to your house in Chestermere. Your water consumption is measured in metres cubed (cubic metres). One cubic metre is equal to 1,000 litres or 220 gallons.

The service charge on your sanitary sewer bill covers the costs associated with the infrastructure needed to collect the wastewater from your home for delivery to the treatment plant in Calgary and includes the cost of issuing your bill.
Sanitary Sewer Consumption Charge
This charge is based on the amount of wastewater you produce, which is determined from the amount of water you use (that flows into your house).
