Water Rates, Fees & Charges

Multi-year rates were adopted on June 9, 2015 by the Board of Directors. Each fiscal year a menu of rate schedules are developed in order to put in place effective strategies to address times when reduced sales result in reduced revenues. Situations such as these may be caused by drought, conservation, and/or natural disasters. Our Board of Directors and staff strive to minimize economic impacts to our customers while also balancing the costs of maintaining a healthy infrastructure in order to deliver safe, reliable water to your tap.

We are currently under Level 1 rates, highlighted in green below. These rates will be in effect until escalated or rescinded by the Board of Directors, or a new fiscal year water rate schedule becomes effective. Any changes to the rate schedule will be posted here. For a detailed rate schedule including System Operations Charges, please click on this link. Rates below are effective September 1, 2017.

Recycled water is not subject to drought rates and is currently $5.22/unit (uniform rate).
