FY2027 (July 1, 2026 – June 30, 2027): Increase base rate and each tier use rate by 4%
In addition, a 5th tier water conservation rate is proposed to start with any usage in the 5th tier to be billed at $7.00/1,000 gallons used per month in FY2025. In FY2026 and FY2027 the rate will be at $10.00/1,000 gallons used per month.

For New Development:
The Conditional Commitment for Water Service (CCWS) Fee will increase from $3,300/Equivalent Dwelling Unit to $3,370/Equivalent Dwelling Unit for all three fiscal years.
The System Development Charge will decrease from $6,603/Equivalent Dwelling Unit to $6,404/Equivalent Dwelling Unit.
The Equivalent Dwelling meter ratio for meters 1″ and larger will increase due to much more water being consumed in the larger meters compared to the baseline 3/4″ meter.
