2010 Water, Wastewater & Storm Rate Budget and Services Overview

Since 1859, residents of Hamilton have been able to enjoy municipal drinking water. Hamilton was among the first cities in Canada to provide its residents with clean municipal drinking water and this year marks the beginning of our 150th Anniversary.

Then as now, Hamilton continues to use proactive, forward thinking when planning strategic investments to ensure continuous improvements to the water and wastewater systems. Hamilton's ability to provide clean, safe drinking water to its residents as well as protect the natural environment through wastewater collection and treatment is a fundamental task of the City.

The 2010 Water, Wastewater and Storm Budget reflects Council's ongoing commitment and dedication over the past decade to implement a sustainable financing plan while bridging the divide between the funding shortfalls for necessary infrastructure with affordable water rates. This budget calls for a continued commitment through the adoption of a recommended rate increase of 4 percent.
