Water Meter Readings

Residents and businesses of the community are asked to provide water meter readings on a quarterly basis. Notices are provided when readings are required. The Town of Ogema staff read water meters annually in September, but need access to the meter in order to do so.  Please note, if a water meter reading has not been obtained at a location in over a year, the Town of Ogema will not be responsible for adjustments or discrepancies. Regular reading of your water meter allows you to keep your account current and accurate. Your water bill is then based on your actual consumption instead of an estimate that could result in  inaccurate billing. If you have had a number of estimated reads, followed by an actual read – you may see a sudden increase in your invoice if your water consumption was higher than what was estimated. When you provide consistent, actual reads you can monitor your water consumption – this can also help identify any plumbing leaks in toilet or fixtures – saving money.

Paying Your Utility Bill

Utility Bill shall be paid within a period of thirty days from the date of issue. A penalty of 2% per month shall be charged on all unpaid amount after the 30th day of the month following in which they become due.
