How does BWA change rates?

On Tuesday April 6, 2021 the BWA Board adopted Resolution 2021-01. The Resolution includes an increase in wastewater rates of 6.5% as recommended in the recently completed Water & Wastewater Rate Study.  The increase in wastewater rates is necessary to provide adequate funding for the Authority's future wastewater operations and collection system upgrades. 

The last time rates were updated was 2016. In addition to increasing wastewater rates, the 2021 Resolution updates or clarifies customer-class descriptions (residential, multi-family, commercial) and eliminates various fees or charges that are either no longer applicable or otherwise addressed in the Authority's Schedule of Fees adopted in 2019.
