The City of Edmonton operates three public utilities: Sanitary Drainage, Stormwater Drainage, and Waste Management Services. The Utilities report to Council’s Utility Committee.

The Utilities operate under their respective Council approved Fiscal Policies. The Budgets for the Utilities reflect the strategic directions and initiatives identified in their 2014-2016 Business Plans presented to the Utility Committee on June 18, 2013.

The three utilities are operated as public utilities and are funded entirely through program and rate revenue. All of the utilities are charged an appropriate share of City of Edmonton corporate overhead, including a share of governance costs.
