WATER UTILITY

Rates for water service are comprised of two components: Service Charge, with a flat monthly rate based on the water meter size and usage charge, based on units of water consumption.

All Water Customer Rates
Across most customer classes, increasing the water service and usage charges 2.0%. The only exceptions being 4.1% and 5.3% increases to tiers three and four, respectively, of the residential water usage charge, and a no increase (for both the service and usage charges) to the Interdepartmental (Large Turf) water rates.

WASTEWATER UTILITY

Rates for residential wastewater service are comprised of two components: Service Charge with a flat monthly rate, and Usage Charge based on wastewater demand volume. Wastewater volume is calculated for each customer based on 90% of the average monthly water use for the three lowest water usage months from December through March (also known as the “winter water monthly average”).
This approximates indoor household usage and the resulting demand on the wastewater system. A City-wide winter water monthly average is used for new customers until an individual customer average can be determined.

All Wastewater Customer Rates
Across most customer classes, wastewater rates will increase 2.5% for the service charge and the usage charge for residential and non-residential customers.
