At the time I relented and had my meter put in, all of Lake Country was getting their meters for free via grants from the Provincial gov. Don't ask me why we got hosed on it, but not paying for the meter means you get hosed even more.

Your taxes do not include water if your in a single residential home. You are billed separately from the GEID.

There has to be someone out here in the Castanet world that gets billed from the GEID and is using a meter. Would like to find and average monthly charge. :D

We are family of five and our latest bill was $92.30. Our highest bill is typically the fall one, with watering of our small vegetable garden and yard (.12 lot) over the summer. Our last fall bill was $192.55 for three months.

Prior to the water meter we installed we were paying the flat quarterly rate of $150 ($50/mo). We just got our bi-monthly bill and it was for $83 ($41.50/mo). We are a household of two with a 0.14 lot. Out of the total bill, only about $8 of it was for actual water consumption, the rest being delivery/service charges. Hope that helps.

Thank you and personally I think that’s terrible. We have to buy the meter, pay for install and then most of the cost is just for delivery/service charge. Rip off! :-X

My bill averages $700 - $800 per year. Ridiculous for a single household of 1. As previously stated it's not so much the consumption it's the delivery charge. Tried talking to GEID and I was told they were too busy and had wasted enough time trying to justify the expense to me". I've talked to several people that live in stratas and their strata fees have not changed in the last 2 years. How can that be when they also get water thru GEID. Where's the delivery charge to strata units! Funny how they all have lovely green lawns.

Water is Life! Interesting about water rate and the price to deliver ! and also selling water like this article from the Council of Canadians... https://secure.canadians.org/page/20925 ... id=1306274
