How Are Rate Increases Decided?

At The District, we plan for the long term, making investments in our water and wastewater system responsibly and gradually. Every year we develop a budget based on the planned capital and operating needs we have for that year. All our costs, from capital infrastructure projects to daily operations to emergency work, are paid for solely by rates and fees, not taxes. The District Board of Directors typically votes on rate adjustments in December of every year to be implemented on customer bills after the beginning of the following year.
