News From The Richland Water Authority


The Authority will increase rates effective September 1, 2018. The usage charge will increase to $8.42 per thousand gallons compared to the $7.02/thousand currently charged. The flat rate which is determined by meter size will increase from $27.00 per quarter to $30.00.

The rate increase is necessary because West View is raising the rate it charges the Authority approximately 31%, and the operating costs of the system are also increasing.

For a residential customer who uses 15,000 gallons of water per quarter, the bill will total $156.30 compared to the $132.30 currently charged. Please contact the Authority office if you have questions on your bill.

A complete rate schedule for the 5/8" meter is located under the Forms and Publications heading.
