WINNIPEG - People in Morden will soon be paying more for their water.
Homeowners in the Manitoba city will see the cost of water jump by about 23 per cent in the new year.
The causes are the ongoing extreme drought in that part of the province and the city's need to buy more water from the area's water co-operative.
Most people will be paying over $13 per 1,000 gallons instead of the current $11.
Water rates have been stable in Morden since 2014.
The new pricing is set to begin on March 1st.
