Water & Wastewater Billing
The Town of Lincoln Water and Wastewater Systems
The Town of Lincoln is responsible for the construction, maintenance and operation of the water and wastewater distribution system. The Town developed policies to provide for the full cost recovery of the Town’s water and wastewater distribution system.
Water bills pay for three essential services:
- Delivery of clean drinking water
- Wastewater collection and removal
- The infrastructure and maintenance of the Town’s water and wastewater systems
On average, 50% of each utility bill paid to the Town of Lincoln also covers Niagara Region’s water & wastewater costs. There is a shared responsibility for the treatment and distribution - the Town acts as a retailer in the distribution of water to the resident, while the Region acts as a wholesaler to the municipality.
