In December 2017, Northwestern Water and Sewer District’s (The District) Board of Trustees passed a resolution adjusting rates to match the cost of service and repairing aging infrastructure.
The average family of four using 6,000 gallons of water per month will see an additional charge of $1.47 for The District water charge and an additional charge of $2 for District sewer. This adjustment is in addition to increases from the cities that provide water or sewer.
