Large volume sewer discount program

This program is intended for customers who use water to manufacture, assemble or process goods and materials within the city of Winnipeg.


To qualify, a company must:

  1. use more than $150,000 of sewer services (sewer rate or overstrength wastewater surcharge)
  2. apply each year by December 31 following the calendar year for which the discount is being requested,
  3. conduct a business limited to the manufacture, assembly or processing of goods and materials at premises within the city,
  4. not be in default under the Sewer By-law or the Waterworks By-law, and
  5. have sales outside of the city of at least twenty-five percent (25%) of the total sales in a calendar year, and verify this by providing an audited statement outlining:
    • total sales for the year
    • total sales outside the city for the year
    The audit must be performed by an independent accountant authorized to provide audit opinions in this Province.


The discount:

  • is calculated at 10% on the total dollar value of sewer services over $150,000 (e.g., on $250,000 of sewer and overstrength wastewater surcharges in a year, the company would be eligible for a credit of $10,000), and
  • is applied directly to the company's water account

Refund cheques are not issued.
