Changes to the way the city bills residents for drinking water, taking away sewage and stormwater won’t be a big drain on the average homeowner's finances, says the city's deputy treasurer Isabelle Jasmin.

The city released its draft report on a new water rate structure on Oct. 3. For 85 per cent of residents, the new billing system will mean a $2 difference on their monthly bill, according to the city.
