A new direction for water rates and debt financing for the city of Winnipeg
Carroll, William Daniel.
A set of policy guidelines for the City of Winnipeg is developed upon which a recommended conceptual rate structure is based. The new concept involves charging a uniform rate for all water consumed, surcharging excess water use, and establishing a reserve fund for the purpose of financing system expansion. Also recommended is the institution of an annual meter charge which reflects potential demand, and plumbing code changes and informational programs which will result in a modification of water demand patterns.
