2024 Water Rates
We all see prices going up everywhere, so it should come as no surprise that water rates will be adjusted. Increases in our supplies and operational costs, along with other factors have required Jackson County Water to increase our water rates.
Each year, we try to implement a modest increase in order to keep up with costs while keeping financial impact to our customers at a minimum.
We have always implemented this increase at the first of the year, but this year, that increase will go into effect October 1, 2023. This will bring our annual rate increases into line with our fiscal year which commences on October 1 each year. We would foresee no adjustment to this rate until next October.
This adjustment to our rates will go into effect for usage starting in October of 2023. The new adjusted rates are as follows:
- The minimum bill will be increased only $0.25 from $30.00 to $30.25. And this is for any usage from 0 – 2000 gallons.
- Then, for customers using water in the range of 2001 gallons – 30,000 gallons will pay $15.55 for every 1000 gallons of water used in this category.
- Customers using water within the range of 30,001 gallons – 50,000 gallons will pay $14.70 for every 1000 gallons of water used in this category.
- Customers using water within the range of 50,001 gallons – 100,000 gallons will pay $13.65 for every 1000 gallons of water used in this category.
- Customers using water within the range of 100,001 gallons – 150,000 gallons will pay $12.75 for every 1000 gallons of water used in this category.
- Customers using over 150,001 gallons will pay $11.75 for every 1000 gallons of water used in this category.
Here are some examples of the change this new rate will make:
- A customer using up to 2000 gallons will pay $30.25, a total of $0.25 increase on the minimum bill, which amounts to an increase of 12.5 cents for each 1000 gallons.
- A customer using 4000 gallons will pay $61.35, which is a total increase of $1.75 on their bill.
- A customer using 6000 gallons will pay $92.45, which is a total increase of $3.25 on their bill.
That means that Jackson County Water never costs more than 1.55¢ per gallon.
Just think: That means that a 20 oz. bottle of water you buy in the store may cost you as much as $1.50, but 20 oz. of Jackson County Water (delivered directly to your home) only costs you 0.24 cents.
That is quite a bargain, considering you get this safe drinking water delivered to your house 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
