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
