2017 Water Rate Modifications and Cost of Service Process

The 2017 Cost of Service Study analyzed historical consumption data, costs to treat and deliver potable water and determined revenue requirements to fully recover the cost to operate the City's water utility service.  Water rates for both the fixed meter charge and variable consumption charges were established for a five-year period.  Additionally, a wholesale water supply charge was established to decouple the wholesale water costs from the City's rate structure.  The water supply charge is subject to annual adjustment based on actual water costs from the City's wholesale water suppliers.  For more information and to review documents relevant to this process, click here.

The current water rates were approved by City Council on November 7, 2017.  Rate modifications were recommended based on the 2017 Cost of Service Study.  Water rates have taken effect on January 1, 2018 and first appeared on the February 2018 billing statements.
