As part of a multi-year approach to funding maintenance and long-term infrastructure replacement, increases are being proposed for each of these utilities. Making sure that Kitchener Utilities delivers safe, clean and reliable water to you every time you turn on the tap is our commitment to you. Having a multi-year approach to funding our aging infrastructure is critical to delivering on this commitment today, and for generations to come.
