Decision Advice and Other Information

The Executive Committee:

 

1.  Referred Recommendation 16 in the letter (November 24, 2015) from the Budget Committee [EX10.23b] to the General Manager, Toronto Water and the General Manager, Economic Development and Culture to research the impacts of the proposed changes to the surcharge formula on individual companies taking into consideration the proposed storm water management charge and report back to the Budget Committee as part of the 2017 Budget process.

"16. City Council direct that, effective January 1, 2016, the industrial waste surcharge program formula for the calculation of surcharge fees be applied to all treatable parameters that exceed the sewers by-law limits, instead of only the one parameter that exceeds the sewer by-law limits by the greatest amount, allowing full cost recovery for the wastewater services provided by the City, such surcharge to be phased in over a six year period to mitigate impacts to existing companies."

Origin

(November 6, 2015) Report from the Deputy City Manager and Chief Financial Officer and the General Manager, Toronto Water

Summary

This report presents the recommended 2016 water and wastewater consumption rates and service fees arising from concurrent adoption of the recommended 2016 Toronto Water Operating and Capital Budgets. 

  

Council, as part of last year's budget process, endorsed that the capital plan prepared for the 2016 budget process be premised on 8% water and wastewater consumption rate increases for 2016, followed by successive 5% increases in 2017 and 2018 in order to reinstate approximately $1 billion in capital funding lost from a systematic decline in consumption and to fund emerging projects.

 

Accordingly, this report recommends an 8% water and wastewater consumption rate increase for all metered and flat rate consumers, effective January 1, 2016.  In addition, this report recommends inflationary fee increases for certain water and wastewater services, as well as higher increases for some fees in order to reflect full cost recovery for the provided services.

 

This report also recommends reducing the eligibility consumption threshold for the industrial Block 2 consumers to 5,000 m3 (from 6,000 m3) to allow for smaller industrial process users to benefit from the reduced rate.
