Translation – Explanation and Caution

Water Metering

The water meter program introduced by the City of Surrey is designed to enhance the quality of life in our community and prepare for future growth.

Metering is an equitable system that is based on a user-pay system, like natural gas and electricity services. Metering water in a household helps determine how much a family uses, and might even change some habits. Metering is also an opportunity to save money on your utility bill.

The City of Surrey’s Metering Program provides a fair and equitable way to charge customers and encourage homes to save water.  Metering makes conservation beneficial to the individual resident, who desires to save both money and water, and to Surrey as a whole because it reduces the amount of water purchased from the Greater Vancouver Water District.
