Proposed Increase to Water Supply Requirement (WSR) Fees in 2024
On Aug. 8, 2023, Utilities presented initial information to City Council on potential WSR fee increases. Staff presented an increase from $68,200 per acre-foot of water to $179,500 per acre-foot in 2024. This is due to the rising value of water and the cost of supporting our water supply system into the future.
