Cost of Service Study for Wastewater Rates and Participation Fees

Cost of Service Study

In July of 2022, the District awarded a contract to IB Consulitng, LLC to conduct a Wastewater Rate and Participation Fee Study.   The Board of Directors conducted two public workshops, on January 12, and February 2, 2023, to discuss the findings and recommendations of the Wastewater Cost-of-Service Rate Study and to gather Board and public input. This input has been incorporated into the attached study.

Wastewater Cost-of-Service Rate Study


Wastewater Rate

The current wastewater rate of $36/month has been in effect since July 1, 2019.  IB Consulting has determined that the current rate does not provide sufficient revenues to fund necessary operations, maintenance, and regulatory programs, as well as capital investment and reserves to meet the utility’s stated needs.  A Public Hearing will be held on May 4, 2023, at 4:30 p.m. at 5807 Springview Drive, Rocklin, California to consider the adoption of the proposed increases to rates for wastewater utility services.

The proposed wastewater rates for FY 2024 through FY 2028 are shown below. If a majority protest does not exist at the Public Hearing, the District Board may adopt the rates with an effective date of July 1, 2024, and each July 1 thereafter through July 1, 2027.
