Faced with the need to pay for a large number of high-cost infrastructure projects necessary to keep both the water and sewer systems operating reliably into the future, the Board of Commissioners adopted rate increases for water and sewer services in 2024 and beyond at its December 14th Regular Meeting. With more than half of the projects identified in the District’s $450,000,000 ten-year Capital Improvement Program needed for sewer system upgrades, the larger rate increases will be seen for sewer service. With these increases, the average residential water customer will see the monthly cost for water service go up by just under two dollars. Sewer customers will see the average monthly bill go up by just over eight dollars.
Despite these increases, the District still maintains among the lowest water and sewer rates in the area. Watch for our 2024 Rate Survey in the next Newsletter.
