Water and Sewer Rate Changes-2016/2017

The Tuolumne Utilities District continues to undertake capital improvements in support of upgrading the District’s drinking water infrastructure and sewer infrastructure. In November 2015, the District approved a 5-year capital improvement program (CIP) that identifies critical improvement needs. The approved 5-year CIP was accompanied by a 5-year rate plan, with increases to water and sewer rates over that term.

The District will implement the second year of the rate plan effective January 1, 2017. Billing statements issued after January 1st will reflect water and sewer rate increases according to the approved rate structure.

5-Year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for Water and Sewer

On November 17, 2015, as part of the Public Hearing, Rate Study, and adoption of water and sewer rates, the Board approved the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for water and sewer projects. The CIP is a “rolling document” with older projects dropping out of the plan and new projects being added each year.
