Utility Rates

Utility Rates are designed to cover the operations (treatment, storage, pumpage and distribution) and capital projects related to water quality and regulatory requirements.

The water and wastewater service charges are based on water meter size to reflect the demand placed on the utilities. The water, wastewater, and infrastructure volumetric charges are based on consumption and are designed to encourage conservation.

The infrastructure charges are for the capital replacement of the water distribution and wastewater collection systems, roadway damage associated with the utility, and water and wastewater upgrades to serve redevelopment in existing core areas. Minimum charges equal to the service charges apply to the water and wastewater portions of the bill.

Rates list below are effective January 1, 2017.
