Customer Service: current rates

The District's highest priority is to ensure the delivery of a reliable water supply of the highest quality at reasonable and equitable costs.

On April 12, 2017, the Board of Directors approved a five-year rate structure with the first rate adjustment effective May 1, 2017 in the amount of 8 percent. This adjustment affected the base rate only. The volumetric rate remained unchanged. The rate structure cannot exceed each year’s specified percentage. The Board has committed to reviewing the rates annually, reserving the opportunity to adjust rates downward if warranted.
