Annual Water Meter Reading begins May 1

The City of Winnipeg’s annual water meter reading program resumes May 1, 2024 and continues until August 30, 2024. Meter readers will be visiting homes between 9:00 am and 8:30 pm on weekdays.

Meter readers will wear a uniform showing the City of Winnipeg logo and have a hand-held device, along with photo identification. Homeowners are reminded to ask for identification before permitting a meter reader to enter their home.

Meter readers will only knock on front doors or side doors; they will not knock at back doors.

Please ensure your water meter is easily accessible and clear of obstructions. Dogs must be secured in another room or kennel before readers will enter the home.

If you are not home at the time of the visit, a meter reading card will be left with instructions on how to provide a reading by phone or online. The City requires at least one accurate meter reading per year.

Residents can also contact the Utility Billing Centre by phone at 204-986-2455 or by email at
