  • Failure to provide a meter reading for two or more consecutive quarters will result in an additional $35.00 fee

Water Rates

The Board of Directors approved a water rate increase at the 2017 Annual Members Meeting. New rates are $5.00/1000 gals for the first 4,000 gals and $6.00 for usage beyond 4,000 gals. The rate increase was the first in over 25 years and was needed to improve funding for system improvements and to increase capital reserves.
