KALAMA'S WATER/SEWER RATE STUDY
In 2015 the City conducted a comprehensive utility rate study for water and sewer rates. The final report was presented at a public hearing on October 21, 2015. The Study recommends the City increase rates in each of the next five years in order to meet the operating costs, depreciation, and maintenance/improvement requirements of the System. Water rates will be increasing 4% in 2016 and then 2% in each of the next 4 years. Sewer rates will be increasing 9.5% in 2016 and then 9.5% in 2017 & 2018, 8.5% in 2019 and 2% in 2020.
