Peel Region can help you with your high water bill only if the higher charge:

If your higher water bill is due to a leak, you must have proof of repairs, such as a receipt from a licensed plumber or a receipt for the purchase of materials used for the repair.

If your high water bill is due to water theft, you must provide a police report or proof of theft such as a video or photos.

Payment assistance

Peel Region homeowners are eligible for this program once every 5 years at the same address.

Peel Region will provide a subsidy equal to 50% of the bill that is above the average bill amount to a maximum subsidy amount of $2,500.00.

For example, if a homeowner’s usual water bill is $250, and their high bill is $1000, the difference is $750.

In this case, Peel Region would subsidize $375, which is 50% of $750.
