On December 13, 2018, Northwestern Water and Sewer District’s (The District) Board of Trustees passed a resolution adjusting rates to cover the cost of water and sewer services.
The average family of four using 7,500 gallons of water per month will see an additional charge of $.81 for The District water charge and an additional charge of $.85 for District sewer. This adjustment is in addition to possible increases from the cities that provide water or sewer.
Thanks to cost savings by wisely managing our assets and services, The District will have the lowest increase in rates in over 10 years.
