Abstract:

This handbook provides an overview of conservation-oriented water pricing for decision-makers, water utilities, and service providers in Canada. It explains how water pricing works, what the benefits are, and how water utilities can implement conservation-oriented water pricing structures. It also offers advice on how to address implementation challenges, including how to avoid penalizing low-income families and how to maintain revenue stability for water utilities.
