Frequently Asked Questions

Houses built after 1948 most likely were constructed with copper pipes.

According to files, there are 369 properties in the City of North Battleford with lead service lines. Lead service lines were a common practice in homes being built before the 1980s. Through a process called corrosion, lead can leach from lead service water lines into drinking water and can be harmful to human health, especially for young children, infants, and pregnant women. The City of North Battleford offers an Annual Monitoring Program to those properties (usually gets sent out in August) to test the drinking water for lead levels. Results are provided to each property.

The best option to reduce the exposure to lead from lead service lines is to remove those lines and replace them with plastic pipe. There are two options available for City residents (cost-share options are available): Replacement in conjunction with the Underground Pipe and Asphalt Replacement Program (UPAR) or replacement outside UPAR.

If you have lead service lines in your house and would like to sign up for the Annual Monitoring Program, please contact us at 306-445-1700 or visit us in-person at City Hall.

At the bottom right of the page you will see “Amount Due $”. That is the amount you need to pay. That amount includes your current bill and any overdue amounts and penalties.

Payment is due when you receive the bill. We normally allow payments without penalties until the end of the month. The Due date is at the bottom left of your bill.

A penalty of 1.5% is applied to all accounts that are unpaid by month end.

No penalty or water shutoff will happen if your account is in good standing. If payment is not made due to NSF, all balances become due and subject to interest. If you withdraw from WIPPS all balances are due and subject to normal payment deadlines.

Withdraw from WIPPS by giving the utility clerk written notice at least 2 weeks before the next payment is due.


You will have 20 more days to pay your outstanding balance. Water shutoff usually happen on the 20th of each month.

Subscribe to the free text reminder service to receive notice if your utility account is past due. Information about this service can be found in the above section.

If your water was shutoff because of non-payment there is a $100 re-connection fee, in addition to arrears.
