Water Use Licensing - Water Use Fees

Manitoba Hydro plant in Selkirk

Water use fees apply to industrial and "other" (e.g. recreation and heating/cooling systems, etc.) purposes only. Municipal, agricultural and irrigation projects are exempt. Fees are levied for annual water use under the WRA Regulations which came into effect on April 18, 1987. The water use fees are designed to make major users more aware of their rate of consumption and encourage conservation, where applicable.
