2022-2025 UTILITY WATER, WASTEWATER, & IRRIGATION RATE SCHEDULE .
FULL NOTICE* MAILED AND EMAILED TO ALL CUSTOMERS

Q: What does this mean for you ?

A: If you receive a water bill from Gateway Services, the rate schedule starting January 2022 may change pending approval of the proposed rate schedule. (Start date subject to change)

 

Q: When will the new rate schedule start ?

A: If approved for a January 2022 start date, the new rates will reflect on the March 2022 water bill .

 

Q: Why is the rate schedule changing ?

A: A rate study is conducted every 3 or 5 years and may vary based on the impact of growth, set rates to promote water conservation  and capital improvement.

 

Q: What changes will take place with a new rate schedule ?

A: Changes to the new rate schedule may include an increase in annual base and usage charge. The volume of gallons/consumption tiers blocks may change as well.

For Example*( Not based on actual projections): The Base Charge for water may increase from $13.00 a month to $13.25 a month. The volume of water used under a tier may change from 0-25,000 gallons a month to 0-15,000 gallons a month under Tier Rate 1. Proposed rate schedule will be presented during the October 7, 2021 Board of Supervisor’s meeting.

 

Q: When was the proposed rate study communicated ?

A: Gateway Services staff has communicated with HOAs during summer of 2021. The first presentation took place during the April 2021 Board of Supervisors’ meeting. Staff has also attended community HOA meetings, posted with water bill and posted on the GSCDD website.
