Water and Wastewater Rate Changes

 Water  Wastewater

During a drought, the City relies on its customers to preserve remaining water supplies through extraordinary water conservation. At the same time, the City faces increased costs to maintain essential water service, including more expensive capital and operating costs to increase drought water supplies from groundwater and water purchases.
The City's drought water rates provide a portion of the revenue needed for the City’s cost of water service, and encourage extraordinary water conservation to ensure the City maintains sufficient drinking water supplies for its customers. To see how the new rates may apply to your bill, use our Water Rate Calculator.

The adopted wastewater rate change is a 5.5% percent increase to the City's current charges for all customer classes.  The maximum monthly charge for a single family residential customer would increase by $2.22 under the new rates.  The increase will fund operating costs, as well as replacement and repair of the City’s aging sewer system.  This includes replacement of critical facilities at the wastewater treatment plant. The City will expand the number of non-residential customer classifications during FY 2015.  All non-residential accounts will have the same 5.5% rate increase during FY 2015 as for residential accounts.
