Increases to rates are necessary to address aging infrastructure, ensure reliability throughout the system, and minimize interruptions in service. The District is also required to offset increases passed on to us for power, materials, and services.
A monthly water service charge increase has not occurred since 1999, while tiered usage rates have not increased since 2014. Pending remaining rate studies to be completed in early 2019, rate increases are expected to be enacted gradually over the next five years.
