Accounts and Billing
West Shore Environmental Services provides customer care and billing to the City of Langford.
As of September 29, 2004, all existing sewer system accounts have been transferred from Langford to West Shore Environmental Services Inc.
All sewer system user fees will be paid to West Shore Environmental Services and not the City of Langford.
Sewer system user fees will be billed annually around the first week of June for payment by July 2 of each year.
New Connections and Fees
West Shore Environmental Services may impose a Sewer Capital Recovery Fee on owners based on single family equivalents assessed for each property. This is to cover the capital cost for the installation of sewers in the various areas of Langford.
Within existing sewer specified areas, West Shore Environmental Services may also impose a one-time connection fee for new connections to the sewer system. This physical connection fee is based on per inch of diameter of the connecting pipe.
West Shore Environmental Services will impose annual user fees based on cubic meter of water consumed through winter months. User fee consumption data is calculated by the Capital Regional District (CRD) Water Department.
West Shore Environmental Services will impose a one-time account set-up charge of $25.00 for residential connections and up to $125.00 for all other connections. These will apply each time an account is set-up by the owner of a lot or property.
