Rates and Fees

The Town of Oromocto and Base Gagetown share a longstanding and unique partnership.  One element of this partnership is that the Base Gagetown Water Treatment Plant and Wastewater Treatment Plant have been serving the Base and the Town since 1963 and 1954, respectively.  In essence, the Base is the Town’s water supplier.  Water and sewerage costs to the Town have significantly increased in the past five years (50% for water and 67% for sewerage).  The other cost driver is the maintenance costs of the distribution system, operated by the Town, which have doubled in five years.  The current billing system was simply no longer sustainable.

In order to offset these rising costs, the Town will be introducing a new fixed service fee in 2021.  This service fee practice aligns with other jurisdictions to address the costs of maintaining, servicing and renewing the Town’s water and sewerage infrastructure.  This quarterly fee is also being implemented to invoice customers appropriately for the costs of the water and sewerage systems, and will help to reduce rate volatility. Therefore, a quarterly fixed service fee of $30 will be phased in over 5 years, beginning in 2021.  This year’s fee has been approved for 2021 at $6 per quarter.  Each subsequent year the fee will be reviewed during Council’s budgeting process and moving to the next phase will require Council’s approval. 


Water and Sewerage Utilities in Oromocto are based on water consumption and a fixed service fee billed on a quarterly basis.  Our water meters are read manually each quarter, (currently civilian housing have an estimated bill in February each year) with invoices being created the 1st of February, May, August and November.
The water consumption rates will remain unchanged in 2021.

$7.95 per 1000 gallons (Imperial Water Meter)
$1.75 per cubic metre (Metric Meter)
$93.17 unmetered water supply per quarter
$50.00 temporary disconnect fee
$100.00 reconnection fee​
