Q. I cannot see the numbers on my water meter. What should I do?

Q. What should I do if there is a previous balance on my bill but I was not the owner at that time?
A. Consult your solicitor to verify if any adjustments were done.
Q. What should I do if I have difficulty with the mail and I’m not receiving my bills?
A. We have no control over Canada Post. Register on our website to receive your bills by email (e-billing).
Q. I have not received my invoice, can you credit the penalty?
A. No, you are responsible for keeping your account up to date. This is why the bills are always payable on the last business day of the month of January, April, July and October.

Q. I have a sticker on my bill that says that I have a water leak. What does it mean?
A. This is a courtesy message. It was possibly caused by a running tap or a toilet trap that was not closed tightly for a few hours. Do a house test: read your meter, wait 15 minutes, and read your meter again.
Q. There is a sticker on my bill that indicates “defective meter”. How do you know?
A. We mark the meter as defective if our machine does not register a signal when we read the meter. Often, this is caused by a dead battery. The technician must change it. Please schedule an appointment.
Q. How does the municipality estimate my consumption when my meter is defective?
A. It is estimated according to the last 4 to 6 readings. 3 to 4 weeks after installation, we will return to re-read the meter to make adjustments for the next billing.
Q. How do I make a change of address?
A. Send an email to: email@example.com.
Q. I want my tenant to pay the utility bills. How do I make the change?
A. No problem! Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will add his name to the account and the tenant will receive a copy of the bills. Please note, however, that the owner remains responsible for the account if the tenant does not pay.
Q. Is there a fee to open or close a utility account?
A. When we issue a final bill, there is a fee of $45.00 charged to the seller.
