Tucson Water is hosting town halls to present three options for proposed fiscal year 2014 water rates and fees. The options have been recommended by the Citizens Water Advisory Committee (CWAC).
Proposed rate changes reflect an estimated increase from $2.91 to $3.68 in the monthly water bill for the average residential customer in a single family home. Nearly 90% of Tucson Water customers are residential accounts.
The town halls start at 5:30 p.m. The presentation on rates, fees and options begins at 5:45 p.m. City staff and CWAC members will be available for questions.

Wednesday, May 15 – William M. Clements Recreation Center, 8155 E. Poinciana Dr.
“CWAC members develop yearly recommendations for changes to rates and fees which are a reflection of ongoing investments made to ensure a reliable water supply and distribution system,” said Alan Forrest, Tucson Water Director.
CWAC annually reviews the revenue requirements of the water system. Its members are appointed by the Mayor and Council and the City Manager’s Office.
A public hearing is scheduled during the Tuesday, May 21, Mayor and Council meeting. Following the hearing, Mayor and Council are expected to vote on adopting a new water rate schedule.
