Windsor Water Utility Rates to Increase 3.29 Percent in 2019

Water Rates_Webready

Effective Feb. 1, Windsor Water Utility customers’ annual water consumption rate will increase 3.29%. The rate increase is the lowest it has been in recent years and the new rates will be reflected in the March water bill.

Windsor’s Water Utility rates cover the cost of water and the infrastructure it takes to deliver it to residents. For instance, there’s cost involved with the collection, cleaning, filtering, disinfecting and testing of water used in residents’ homes. Because Windsor’s Water Utility serves the purpose of delivering safe, clean water to its residents in the most cost-effective way possible, town staff regularly review Windsor’s water rates to ensure that it can pay for residents’ supply. As the cost of water continues to rise, so will local utility costs.

In 2018, the average single-family residential water use charges were about $35.06 per month and in 2019 that average will be approximately $35.76 per month for Windsor Water Utility customers.

“As rates continue to rise across the front range, there are some things residents can do to conserve water,” says Water Resource Manager John Thornhill. Thornhill recommends residents check for leaky appliances such as toilets or replacing old less efficient showerheads. “The town offers rebates on toilets and washers as well as dye tablets to check if your toilet has a leak or not.” For additional conservation tips, visit windsorgov.com/waterconservation.

There are also agencies who offer affordability programs for families struggling to pay their utility bill. United Way 2-1-1 provides need-based services and can be reached at 970-407-7066 and Stepping Stones of Windsor is another outreach dedicated to helping families in financial need that can be reached at 970-686-2368.
