Water Rate Increase & Surcharge
In June 2021, PUD Commissioners approved gradual rate increases over four years. Water rates increase annually in January (during low use season). Electric in July. The standard residential water base rate is now $34.80 (up from $32.65 in 2021). The consumption charge begins at $0.31 per hundred gal. A $5.00 capital surcharge also goes into effect Jan. 5. See highlighted line item on sample bill above. The capital surcharge is intended to cover costs of capital repairs and upgrades to PUD water systems.
