Fees & Rates

Water Rates and Cost

(Effective April 01, 2020). The Waterworks Board sets rates on a declining rate structure. In other words, as water usage increases, the water rate decreases. A minimum charge of $15.00 applies to all retail customers each month. This minimum charge also pays for the first two units (0,1 or 2 units) of water usage. An additional amount is then charged for each unit above the minimum charge for the first two units.

In addition, applicable State Water Plan and Sales Tax charges will apply.

1 unit (ccf) = 100 cubic feet = 748 gallons
