Service Description & Fees
Since the late 1990s, the City has increased water rates annually in order to avoid large increases that may occur on an unpredictable schedule like those that have taken place in several neighboring municipalities. The increase is necessary to cover operating costs for providing some of the safest, best-tasting water in the nation, and to maintain the city's water distribution infrastructure.
The following rates for the period of 07-2023 through 06-2024 represent a 6.9% increase from last year.
