Changes to Pressure Irrigation Rates Coming January 1

Starting January 1, 2020, WaterPro’s pressure irrigation (PI) rates for both metered and unmetered customers will change. Our last rate increase was in 2016, and increasing costs have made it necessary to raise our rates.

As a customer-owned not-for-profit utility, our goal is to keep rates reasonable for our users while also providing for maintenance and future development of our system.

The tables show our current rates and our new rates that will begin in January. Keep in mind:

  • All customers pay the base rate every month of the year.
  • Our metered customers pay an additional charge during PI season (April 15-October 15) based on usage; the more water they use, the more they pay.
  • Unmetered customers pay a flat rate year-round, depending on the size of their lot.
  • We are working to install meters for all our PI customers. Eventually there will be no more non-metered connections.

If you have questions about the changes, please contact our office.
