** Important Notice DWM Late Fee Update **
In June 2008, the City Council approved a four-year rate program of water/sewer rate increases to ensure maintenance of Atlanta’s water and wastewater systems and to fund Clean Water Atlanta Program improvements, such as new water and sewer pipes and sewer overflow facilities. That rate package expires June 30, 2012.
In February 2008, more than 70 percent of the City’s voters voted to reauthorize the Municipal Option Sales Tax (MOST), which provides one-third of the Department’s funding. The one-cent sales tax expires in 2012 and can be reauthorized for one more four-year period.
These rate increases help ensure the continued success of Clean Water Atlanta by providing funding that allows the City to meet is legal and environmental clean water obligations. The success of Clean Water Atlanta lays the foundation for our City’s continued economic success and helps us protect our water resources for future generations.
The rate structure has several features:
The 3-ccf minimum-use charge was eliminated
The single-meter, multi-family dwelling penalty removed
The rates include a $5.21 base fee for water service and a $5.21 base fee for sewer service
The discount for qualifying low-income senior citizens and .15 Homeland Security surcharge remain in effect.
