Water & Wastewater Utility Rates

On January 1, 2018, Water, Sewer & Infrastructure rates will increase overall by 9.25%.   

The rates are designed to fund all of the Water and Wastewater utilities' costs related to operations (treatment, storage, pumpage, and distribution/collection systems) and capital projects related to water quality, city growth, and regulatory requirements.

The rate structure consists of charges based on service and volume (volumetric charges). 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 exisiting core areas. Minimum charges equal to the service charges apply to the water and wastewater portions of the bill.

For multi-unit residential properties where the ratio of the number of dwelling units to the number of meters is four or less, the rates under multi-unit residential property section (A) apply.  For multi-unit residential properties where the ratio of the number of dwelling units to the number of meters is greater than four, the rates under multi-unit residential property section (B) apply.  

For individually-metered condominiums with separate irrigation services, there is no service charge for the irrigation service and the second block water, wastewater and infrastructure residential volumetric rates apply for the irrigation service.

Rates list below are effective January 1, 2017.
