Water and Sewer Rates

The City's Utilities Division operates the water, sanitary sewer and storm drainage systems for the community.

These services are funded entirely by user fees — not by tax dollars. Therefore, the utility rate structure is designed to maintain the system as it ages and encourage water conservation. More than 82 percent of all residential customers fall in the 0-24,000 gallons range of water used per quarter.

Contact Utility Billing staff at 952-949-8382 or 952-949-8380 during business hours with questions about rates.
