Rates

DUWA assesses each Community based on their respective usage of the System.  DUWA collects revenue directly from the Communities served by the System to cover operating costs and debt for Capital Improvements.

The Service Agreement specifies that the current Rate Methodology will remain in use for at least 5 years so as to preserve stability for the communities.  This means that rates will continue to reflect self-reported “base flow” (i.e. water consumption), plus a pro rata share of the “excess flow” (i.e. the difference between the total flow treated annually minus the sum of all base flow).  Excess flow values will continue to be calculated as a 5 year average to account for flow variations which occur during wet and dry years.
