about Estimated Average Consumption Rate
I’m going on holidays, will I still be billed for my estimated average consumption?
A. If your household goes on an annual vacation, this has been accounted for in your new Estimated Average Consumption. If you are planning to be away longer than you have in the past, account holders will need to provide written notice to Utilities@slavlake.ca 10 days prior to departure. This change will be adjusted accordingly.
Last year I had a water leak, will it count towards my estimated average consumption?
A. There is a possibility that this may affect your estimated average consumption. If an account holder can provide confirmation of the fix, your consumption will be adjusted. Documentation must be provided 10 business days prior to the next billing cycle, which begins the 1st of each month.
I’m a Landlord, and no one occupies my rental property, will I still be billed for an Estimated Average Consumption?
