Billing Cycle

The City of Airdrie bills on a 28 day cycle. Residents receive their utility bill every four weeks. This means that you will receive 13 bills in a calendar year and the due date will vary based on when your water meter was read. Fixed rates will be prorated based on the number of days in your billing cycle. 

Note: Water and sewer consumption charges are based on the amount of water that passes through your water meter.
