Residential properties in Powell River are billed for water, garbage and sewer annually, and the charges are included on the annual property tax notice. To avoid a 10% penalty, payment must be received by the first working day after July 1 of each year.

The annual garbage charge is for the service of curb side pickup. In addition to this charge there is a disposal fee of $2.00 per bag. A City Garbage Collection Ticket must be affixed to each bag left at curb side for pickup.

Commercial Utility Services

Commercial properties are billed for water charges annually.  Commercial Water bills are mailed to property owners in mid to late May and are due the first working day after July 1 of each year.  Outstanding amounts after this date are subject to a 10% penalty.  Outstanding amounts at December 31 are transferred to property taxes as tax arrears.
