Increases are the result of fee hikes from Metro Vancouver – which supplies water and sewer services to member municipalities – as well as the district’s own costs of maintaining system infrastructure like pipes and pumping stations.

In terms of actual dollars, single-family homeowners will see flat fees for those combined services go from $1,677 in 2019 to $1,754 in 2020 – an increase of about $77 a year.

Of that, increases to water fees make up about $35 while hikes to sewer fees make up about $32.

Fees for water, sewer and recycling for condo owners will go from about $1,179 in 2019 to $1,236 in 2020 – an increase of about $57.
