Water Billing 

The Town of Strasbourg has a quarterly water billing system. Prior to bills being sent out, a green water meter card is mailed to the occupant and the occupant is expected to read their water meter and submit the number back to the Town Office. The cards can either be dropped off at the office or mailed, or the number phoned in ((306) 725-3707) or submitted electronically (strasbourg@sasktel.net).

Water bills are sent out beginning of January, April, July, and October. You have until the 15th of the next month to pay. Past due water bills are sent out at the end of February, May, August, and November. If payment is not made,  a 10 day shut off notice is issued, whereby all arrears and current water have to be paid. A reconnect fee of $150.00 will be charged if the water service is turned off.

Water bills can paid by cash, cheque, debit card or credit card at the Town Office. We also offer online banking for Credit Unions, RBC, BMO, TD, CIBC and Scotiabank customers, as well as e-transfer to strasbourg@sasktel.net. You will need your water account number to set up your online banking. The number can be found on your water bill or by calling the Town Office.
