Rate Schedule

Rates
  • Residential - Residential rates for water service in the county shall be as set forth in the county's fee schedule, as may be amended from time to time.
  • Commercial, Industrial, and Agricultural - Commercial, industrial, and agricultural rates for water service in the county shall be as set forth in the county's fee schedule, as may be amended from time to time.
The Wilson County Board of Commissioners approved the Water Services Committee’s recommended rate increase for Wilson County Water customers effective January 1, 2015. This rate adjustment is needed due to the maintenance costs of our current system and the higher costs for our water supply.  

What is the new rate schedule?

Flat Rate $25.00 remains $25.00
First 3,000 gallons $3.00 per thousand increase to $4.00
Next 3,000 gallons $5.00 per thousand increase to $6.00
Next 3,000 gallons $6.00 per thousand increase to $7.00
Next 3,000 gallons $7.00 per thousand increase to   $8.00

When will I see the new rate in my bill?
The rate adjustments will be made effective January 1, 2015.  Any water used after this date will be billed at the new rate.  

We are proactively managing our water system to meet current and future water needs. The adjusted rates will allow us to maintain clean and affordable water services for our citizens.
