“We strongly encourage all customers, regardless of their water source, to ensure their irrigation systems and rain sensors are operating correctly and efficiently to avoid higher bills due to leaks or unintentional water use,” said Utilities Customer Information & Services Director Sandra Anderson.

The most recent four-year rate schedule took effect October 1, 2021.  The Cost of Service Rate Study, which determined the changes, is available online and includes projected annual adjustments to service rates, fees and charges through 2025.
