The purpose of the tiered rate structure is to encourage conservation and discourage waste. The lower rate is designed to provide for basic household needs and provide a reasonable allowance for irrigation. The higher rates are intended to charge heavier users more to accommodate the additional costs associated with peak demand.
Residential Volume charges are:
Up to 3,000 gallons: $4.61 per 1,000 gallons
3,000 to 15,000 gallons: $5.76 per 1,000 gallons

The City recognizes that our water rates are high compared with other nearby communities. The rates we charge are influenced by the rates we are charged by our water supplier. These costs have been passed on to our customers.
