Utility Rate Studies 2012

Utility Bill

In  2007 and 2008 the City Council adopted changes to the water and sewer utility rates. These changes included annual rate increases through the end of 2013 for sewer and the end of 2012 for water. An additional surcharge for protection of the Lake Whatcom watershed was added to the water utility in 2012.

Rate increases  support the operations, maintenance and capital construction programs required by both State law and City policies. Rates will increase on January 1 of each year through 2018.
