Impacts to Customer Rates
The requirements of our new discharge permit will cost our region’s ratepayers about $1.5-2.1 billion to build. On top of that, about $50 million per year in ongoing maintenance and operations costs are anticipated.
Gradual annual rate increases to fund these improvements have already begun and will continue to be necessary until the project is completed in 2021-2023. For more information on the anticipated rate impacts of the EchoWater Project, please visit Monthly Rates.
