How long has it been since the City increased utility rates?

January 2014 is the last time surface water rates were increased, with the opening of the surface water treatment plant to meet the initial 30% groundwater reduction mandate. The current water and wastewater rates have been in place since 2011. Rate increases are needed to provide funding for the City to make the capital investment necessary to meet the next surface water mandate, which is a 60% reduction in groundwater usage.
