Reducing Your Water & Wastewater Use

Halifax Water bills (for water and wastewater service customers) change according to water usage so each household or business will differ based on individual usage (or consumption) patterns. The water meter measures the amount of water used in a household or business which comprises the largest part of water and wastewater charges on your bill, so lower usage means a lower bill.
