WaterPro’s Culinary Water Rates to Change in October

After holding a public hearing on the matter, the Utah State Public Service Commission (PSC) has approved WaterPro/Draper Irrigation Company’s request for a change in our culinary water rates.

The new rates, which take effect October 1, include:

  • A base residential rate of $19.66 per month for each household. This covers the operating costs and infrastructure maintenance and improvement that must be shared by all our customers.
  • Tiered usage rates, which are charged in addition to the base residential rate. The four tiered rates go up as water usage goes up.
    • Tier 1 Up to 18,000 gallons per month (gpm)
    • Tier 2 18,001-57,000 gpm
    • Tier 3 57,001-150,000 gpm
    • Tier 4 Over 150,001 gpm

Rates charged per tier differ depending on where you live in our service area, since it costs more to provide water to certain areas.

Please note that we are not currently changing our pressure irrigation (PI) rates. However, we are in the process of installing meters on all our PI connections, so if your connection has a meter, the amount you are billed will change to reflect your actual use, not the flat rate you have paid in the past.

If you have questions about the charges on your water bill for either culinary or PI water, please contact our office.
