Arbuckle Public Utility District – Notice of Rate Increase


Arbuckle Public Utility District

The Arbuckle Public Utility District is requesting a rate increase for wastewater services starting January 2019. Residential monthly rate for flat rate customers would increase to $24.00. Wastewater services for other customers would increase 9% over the present rate. 

Why a rate increase is needed: our collection lines in town are over 50 years old, along with our wastewater plant. To qualify for low interest funding and grants, if any are available, we need to charge a 1.2% of the average income of our customers. To qualify for assistance, our rates would need to be $48.00 for wastewater. A small rate increase every year we feel is the best way to qualify for funding. 

Any questions or comments please call the Arbuckle Public Utility Dist. office at (530)476-2054.
