Water Rates

The current rates went into effect for water usage in July 2020. The water rates are established by Mid-Colorado Investment Company, Inc. from whom we purchase our water from. The rates are tied to changes in the Consumer Price Index and the Colorado Springs Utilities “Outside City Limits” rates. The lower of the two is applied.

The effective increase in Customer Charge is 32.51%

Old Customer Charge:            $11.98 per month

New Customer Charge:           $17.75  per month

 

The effective increase in Water Charge is 18.09% and 30.22%

Old Water Charge:                   $4.71 per one hundred cubic feet

New Water Charge:                  $5.75 per ccf up to 1399 cubic feet

                                                 $6.75 per ccf over 1400 cubic feet


For comparison, the Colorado Springs Utilities “Outside City Limits” current rates as of April 2021:

CSU Customer charge:            $34.3410 per month

CSU Water Charge:                   $6.84 per ccf up to 999 cf

                                                   $9.65 per ccf 1,000 to 2,499 cf

                                                 $14.48 per ccf 2,500 cf and greater

 

 

NOTE:Both Customer Charge and Water Charge are combined as one line on postcard bills as "Water"


Maintenance Fee

The Maintenance Fee, of $20.00 per month will not change. This fee is controlled by the Board of Directors and has not had an increase since 2007. The Maintenance Fee goes to the association. A percentage of Customer Charge and Water Rate is passed to the Association. The money earned by the association pays for maintenance, repairs, improvements and operating expenses.
