Rates pay for more than tap water
Water and wastewater rates fund Peel’s complex treatment systems.
Your Peel Region water bill shows your water and wastewater rates.
These rates pay for the safe, high-quality drinking water that comes from your tap, as well as:
- The cost of treating the wastewater (used water) that leaves your home.
- The underground pipes that bring water to and from your home.
- The pumps that help move water through the system.
- Making sure you can rely on these services.
Peel’s water supply is consistent and available whenever you need it.
Your water bill amount is based on your water meter reading, so you only pay for what you use.
Peel’s water and wastewater rates are 30% lower than our neighbouring municipalities. This is significant, considering that Peel Region has one of the largest water and wastewater systems in Canada, serving 1.5 million residents in Brampton, Mississauga, and Caledon.
Your water rates pay for 599 million litres of high-quality drinking water that’s delivered to homes and businesses. Rates also pay for the 500 million litres of wastewater that’s collected and removed everyday in an environmentally responsible way.
