Drumheller’s Town Council approved the 2024 Utility Rate Bylaw on December 18, 2023. There will be a 3% in water and a 6% increase in wastewater. The Town of Drumheller (TOD) continues on a track to self-sustainability. This is ensuring that long-term infrastructure investments are maintained for regulatory compliance.
Fee increases went into effect on January 1st, 2024. The cubic metre charge for water will increase by $0.07, from $2.2386 to $2.3058, and the wastewater will increase by $0.14, from $2.4131 to $2.5579. The monthly charges per household consuming 15 cubic metres will increase by $9.58.
“Our utility systems are on the path to self-sufficiency through responsible cost increases. The investment in our water and wastewater system in 2023 and 2024 is in large part the result of proper financial planning over the last several years which allows the Town to self-fund these expenditures,” say CAO Darryl Drohomerski.
The utility system is a vital part of the TOD’s infrastructure. These rate increases are in accordance with timelines required to reach a sustainable utility and to reach financial stability.
