Reflects the true cost of the service. We analyzed the true cost of servicing the truckfill sites and found the price customers were paying for the service was much lower than the cost to provide the service. The true cost to provide the service is $4.00/m3 as truckfill sites require a great deal of regular maintenance to ensure the sites are safe and well maintained. This $4.00/m3 charge was approved in our rate application.
comparable to the rate for similar service in surrounding areas. The average residential and commercial rates for truckfill sites in areas surrounding the City of Edmonton are $3.92/m3 and $4.19/m3, respectively.
Will be phased in over a 4-year period for a more gradual transition into the new rates.
What does this mean for the average residential truckfill customer?
Based on our customer data over the years, the average residential household uses approximately 16 m3 of water per month. Starting on April 1, 2017, given that average usage, the new rate change will equate to nearly $5.00 more per month per household.
