2021 rates take effect Jan. 1, study underway to determine next rate schedule
Our 2021 sewer rate changes take effect January 1, the final year of our current five-year rate schedule.
The increase is about $6 per MCF (1,000 cubic feet of water used) with a $2 increase in the base rate. Customers who qualify for our reduced Homestead or Affordability rates will see an increase of about $3 per MCF.
Our regional stormwater management fee remains unchanged for 2021. The complete five-year schedule can be found on our Customer Service page.
In a year of challenges, we understand how rate changes affect customers. We continue to offer cost-saving programs including crisis assistance, plumbing assistance, and Affordability and Homestead discounts. You can see how to apply and whether you qualify at neorsd.org/save.
We are conducting a study to determine the rate schedule for the years 2022–2026.
