Water and Wastewater Rate Study
The City of Vaughan is committed to providing water and wastewater rates that are sustainable, fair and affordable, while also sufficient for funding the cost of operating and maintaining Vaughan’s infrastructure.
The City currently follows a rate structure called Uniform Volumetric. This means the customer is charged according to a fixed amount per unit of water consumed. While the unit price for water does not change according to use, the total price of water increases or decreases as a customer uses water. This rate structure is one of the simplest ways to price water based on a citizen’s level of use.
