Ratepayer

Clean Water Atlanta will cost more than $3 billion to fully implement. Water and sewer rates are expected to increase by at least 10% per year through 2015. If the City's funding strategy is successful, the cost to ratepayers would decrease substantially. Mayor Shirley Franklin and her administration are actively pursuing outside funding and evaluating creative financing opportunities.

Funding Strategy

  • Special Local Option Sales Tax
  • $500 million
  • Low Interest State Loans
  • $500 million
  • Federal Appropriations
  • $1 billion
  • Ratepayers
  • $1+ billion
       

    Example: If your monthly water consumption is consistently around $106.97, a 10% per year increase would have the following impact:

    2003
    2004
    2005
    2006...
    2015
    $106.97
    $117.66
    $129.43
    $142.37
    $335.72

    Note: These projected rate increases assume 100% ratepayer funding. If the City's funding strategy is successful, rate increases would be substantially less.
