Note: 2019 Water Rates

 

Just like in our households, Jackson County Water’s costs of supplies and operational costs increase each year, and so in order to keep in line with expenses, Jackson County Water is implementing an increase to our rates. We try to do a modest increase annually in order to keep up with costs while keeping financial impact to our customers at a minimum.

 

 This modification to our rates will go into effect for usage starting in January, 2019.

 

The new rates are as follows:

 

The minimum bill will be $28.00 for any usage from 0 – 2000 gallons. This is approximately a 1.8% increase from last year.

 

Then, customers using from 2001 – 30,000 gallons will pay $12.80 for every 1000 gallons of water used in this category. This is approximately a 2.8% increase in this category.

 

Customers using from 30,001 – 50,000 gallons will pay $11.95 for every 1000 gallons of water used in this category. This is approximately a 3% increase in this category.

 

Customers using from 50,001 – 100,000 gallons will pay $10.90 for every 1000 gallons of water used in this category. This is approximately a 2.8% increase in this category.

 

Customers using from 100,001 – 150,000 gallons will pay $10.00 for every 1000 gallons of water used in this category. This is approximately a 3% increase in this category.

 

Customers using over 150,001 gallons will pay $7.20 for every 1000 gallons of water used in this category. This is approximately a 2.8% increase in this category.

 

Here are some examples of the change this new rate will make:

 

A customer using 2000 gallons will pay $28.00, a total of $0.50 increase on the minimum bill, which amounts to an increase of 25 cents for each 1000 gallons.

A customer using 4000 gallons will pay $53.60, which is a total increase of $1.20 on their bill.

A customer using 6000 gallons will pay $79.20, which is a total increase of $1.90 on their bill.

A customer using 28000 gallons will pay $ 360.80, which will increase their bill by $9.60.

And a customer using 80,000 gallons will pay $952.40, which will increase their bill by $26.30. 

 

That means that Jackson County Water never costs more than 1.4¢ per gallon. A 20 oz. bottle of water in a store may cost you $1.29 or more, but 20 oz. of Jackson County Water costs you 0.219 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.
