County Water Rates to increase
The Wilson County Board of Commissioners approved the Water Services Committee’s recommended rate increase for Wilson County Water customers effective January 1, 2020. This rate adjustment is needed due to increases the county is charged for purchasing water, the maintenance costs of our current system and funding the system's depreciation. Water Services continues to make improvements in our water system to make sure you have safe, reliable and clean water. In the year ahead, we will be replacing meters with newer and more reliable meters, repairing aging pipes and infrastructure, and continuing to maintain our water system for citizens.
What is the new rate schedule?
- Flat Rate $30.00
- First 3,000 gallons $5.00 per thousand
- Next 3,000 gallons $7.00 per thousand
- Next 3,000 gallons $8.00 per thousand
- Next 3,000 gallons $9.00 per thousand
When will I see the new rate in my bill?
The rate adjustments will be made effective January 1, 2020. 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.
