Limoges water and sewer upgrades bring hike to new connection costs

Beginning next year, water and sewer fees in Limoges will cost an extra $500 each per year for the next three years.

The increases are to offset the costs incurred by the upgrades to the town’s lagoon system and new water reservoir, among other changes.

The new totals will only affect developers looking to connect new homes to the system.

“We don’t want the growth to affect our current users,” said Cécile Lortie, the municipality’s treasurer.  

Council settled on $500 dollars a year after holding a public meeting and chatting with developers.

“When we originally looked at it, we were going to give it a big bump,” said Francis Brière, councillor for Ward 4. But the municipality got push back, so it decided to phase in the increases.

Currently sewer maintenance costs $424.72 and water is $287.15 per equivalent unit.
