Proposed rate increases for water, wastewater and solid waste services

Last Updated: 3/24/2017

City of Roseville Environmental Utilities is proposing utility rate increases for water, wastewater and solid waste services. The rate increases will help maintain financial resiliency, offset infrastructure maintenance and rehabilitation costs, and comply with current and future unfunded mandates—all of which ensures high levels of customer service and reliable utility services.

What goes into our rate setting process?
The rate setting process involves key considerations, a number of  factors, and forecasts to determine how much it takes to operate an integrated utility.  Learn more.


Proposed rate plan for residential customers
 

Proposed rate adjustments would generate a total monthly utility bill increase of about $5.09 effective July 1, 2017 and $5.42 beginning July 1, 2018. This is an average 5.4 percent increase for all three utilities in the first 12 months, and an additional 5.5 percent the following year.
