General Water Service Rate:

The Washington County Water Conservancy District passed a 10 cents per 1,000-gallon water rate increase. This increase has been built into the newly adopted tiered water rate structure. This new tiered water rate structure was adopted in part to encourage water conservation, but at the same time keeping rates competitive for indoor water use. Previously, residential (3/4” meter sized) water users were billed 5,000 gallons per month at a rate of $24.72. Effective July 1, 2020, the new residential base rate will be lowered to $20.75 but will not have the 5,000 gallons included as before. The new water tiered rates for each meter size and consumption will be as follows:
