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% of all residential customers fall in the 0–24,000 gallons range of water used per quarter.

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