Rate Changes for Pasco County Utilities Customers

Pasco County Utilities customers should anticipate rate changes on their monthly water, wastewater and reclaimed water bills effective October 1, 2021.  The average residential customer using 6,000 gallons of water will see a billing increase from $77.49 to $81.30 – a difference of $3.81.

Residential reclaimed water customers will also see small increases in the reclaimed water base charge and the Back-Flow Prevention Device fee, along with a new tiered rate for reclaimed water use in excess of 10,000 gallons:

  • Base Charge: $11
    • includes first 10,000 gallons
    • $1.10 for every additional 1,000 gallons
  • Flow Prevention Device fee: $5.99

Pasco is proud to offer our customers high-quality services at one of the lowest rates in the area.  A full list of new rates and fees is available online at bit.ly/pcurates.  Pasco County Utilities fees ultimately benefit all our customers, as Pasco uses these revenues to maintain, repair and replace water, wastewater and reclaimed water systems.

“The revenue helps ensure that all customers have reliable access to safe, clean drinking water every day,” said Utilities Customer Service Director Sandra Anderson.  “With these changes we also strongly encourage all customers, regardless of water source, to ensure that irrigation systems are working correctly and efficiently to avoid higher bills.”

A new four-year rate schedule takes 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.
