As the assets of the Southwest Metropolitan Water & Sanitation District age, the need for maintenance of existing facilities and replacement of other assets increases. In 2014, the District Board of Directors imposed a $1.00 per month water and sewer service fee on all District Customers.
Prior to 2014, customers did not pay the district for water distribution and wastewater collection services as a mill levy had not been assessed in many years. Over the past few years, the surcharge has been gradually raised each year to match operating expenses and projected capital expenditures.
Currently the service fee is $7.00 per month per 3/4 inch tap equivalent and will increase to $8.00 per month effective January 1, 2020.
