Water Rate Increase Information

Beginning in August 2019, rates for water and sewer will increase by 4.5%. This change will result in an increase of $1.47 per month on a minimum household utility bill, which is based on 2,000 gallons of water usage. 

Goals for the Increase

There are several reasons behind the need for a rate increase, but the primary goals remain:

  • Keeping the Water and Sewer Enterprise Fund sustainable
  • Meeting or exceeding the requirements of state issued permits
  • The safe provision of drinking water and collection of wastewater
