Water & Sewer Rate FAQ's

With the City's recent release of the water and sewer rate study we've received some questions from the public. We have put together some information that we hope you will find helpful during this process. Our FAQ's listed below respond directly to feedback we have received from our residents. Should you have addition questions please call (760) 355-3842. 

Why did the City of Imperial conduct a rate study?

There are three primary reasons for rate increases; increasing regulatory mandates, aging infrastructure, and inflation. It is common practice to conduct a rate study every three to five years. The last rate study was conducted in 2009, with the last rate increase implemented in 2013. The City has continued to perform major repairs to the water and sewer systems without fully passing on those costs to our account holders.

2017 Water & Sewer Rate Study

The City of Imperial last performed a water and sewer rate study in 2009. Since then, the City has implemented the rate structure as outlined in that study with the last increase occurring in August 2013. The City has continued to perform major repairs to water and sewer systems without fully passing these costs to our rate payers. The City Council of the City of Imperial contracted Bartle Wells & Associates to perform a water and sewer rate study. The findings of the study determined the rate increases projected to provide sufficient funds for operations and infrastructure spending.
