What do my water rates pay for?

Your quarterly water bill pays for the city’s cost of pumping, treating, and delivering clean water to your home or business. It pays for repair and replacement of wells, water treatment plants, and pipes. Nobody actually pays for the groundwater. The water system is paid for entirely with water fees – it receives no taxpayer support.
