Running a water company is about delivering safe, quality water to our customers. When you pay your water bill each month, you're also supporting an entire system that services your community.
What's in a dollar of water?
We deliver safe, reliable and high-quality water and wastewater at the lowest possible cost. Your monthly water bill pays for the water you consume for drinking, washing dishes, watering your lawn or taking a shower.
But it also goes much further. Water bills help to maintain your water system — thousands of miles of pipes, thousands of meters and valves, hundreds of water mains and wells, and more – so the water will be there decades from now.
For every dollar you spend for service, 97 cents go toward operating, maintaining and repairing the system, and costs beyond our control such as regulatory fees and taxes.
Depending on where you live, you might be drinking water that comes from a well that was drilled during WWII or a pipe that was installed during the Eisenhower administration. That pipe would eventually need to be repaired and replaced — and likely, that day is sooner rather than later.
You also could be sending your wastewater to a state-of-the-art treatment plant that recycles and recharges water to make sure that we're renewing our resources.
As we continue to focus on responsibly managing our resources, every customer helps to support the system when they pay their monthly bill.
