A long-awaited report from City of Ottawa staff recommends changes to how the city charges for drinking water, takes away sewage, and deals with water from big storms.

While the city promises that most households will see hardly any change on their bills, those who use very little water will see their bills go up while those that consume a lot of water could pay less.
