Current Water Rates & Fees
Water Rate Increases for 2016 - 2020

This notice provides information regarding the decision by the Board of Directors of the Truckee Donner Public Utility District (“District”), per board action, to increase the water rates for 2016 and 2017. The proposed change to water rates in Fiscal Years 2018 through 2020 is still pending board decision. 

The District continues to provide high quality water and a reliable distribution system to meet current and future needs. A rate increase is now needed due to accelerated replacement of impaired pipeline to reduce pumping costs, inflationary pressure on overall expenses, and additional costs related to the unfunded State mandate to reduce water consumption. The District has successfully improved efficiencies in many areas so that the average annual rate increase will be about 4% for the next five years.

The District engaged HDR Engineering, Inc. to complete an independent rate and cost of service study. The HDR updated study supports the proposed rate increases and the District’s Board accepted the study results. 

The annual rate increases are: 

2016 2017 2018 2019 2020
6% 5% 3% 3%
