Current Water, Wastewater (Sewer) & Garbage Rates

Water, sewer and garbage rates are set by the City’s Code of Ordinances (Chapter 37 & Chapter 14) and include Ordinances 2016-040 and 2018-045. Ordinances 2016-042 and 2018-045 allow for an automatic adjustment each October based on the U. S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) for all Urban Consumers for the Houston-Galveston-Brazoria Texas Metropolitan Area as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The year over year percent change in the April index will be issued as the basis for this adjustment. 

Note: Based on CPI comparing April 2018 to April 2019, water, sewer and garbage rates were increased by 1.8% beginning with October 2019 bills.
