Sewer Rate Adjustment

Utility bills mailed in July will reflect a planned increase (2022) in wastewater charges effective June 15. The minimum bill will increase $2.70.  Bills mailed in August will include a water consumption rate adjustment for customers using more than 5,000 gallons per month. A rate review indicated the highest volume rate tiers were insufficient to cover system costs. The adjustment will primarily affect residential irrigation and commercial customers. 

July 15 Water Rate

Following a rate study in 2022, there was a recommendation to adjust water fees for the highest volume rate tiers, to cover rising costs of distribution at those consumption levels. Most customers (72%) use less than 5,000 gallons per month and will have no change to their water fees. The new rate will be effective for August 15 meter reads, which is due September 17.
