Rates & Policies


RE: Rate Increase


Dear Valued Customer,

The M-DWSC Board of Directors held a public meeting on July 18, 2022 and voted to increase monthly rates on water service for all members. The Directors on the board consider these rate increases necessary to continue supporting current and upcoming projects that are critical for maintaining system infrastructure and support the escalating costs of operations. These vital improvements further ensure the continuous strategic efforts that will secure the longevity of our water system.


The Corporation will be raising the base monthly fee for standard residential customers by $5.00 per month.  Larger meters will be increased by the same amount multiplied by the AWWA meter equivalent.  The new charges will be reflected on your August bill.  The Per Thousand Gallons charges will remain the same.


The old and new monthly base fee for all meter sizes are set forth below:

                       METER                                                          MONTHLY

                         SIZE                METER EQUIVALENTS        FEE     


                                                                                                                  OLD                NEW


                     5/8" X 3/4"                        1.0                                 $81.00            $86.00    Allowable -0-Usage

The M-DWSC board and management will keep striving to look for ways to cut costs and grow our customer base to keep our rates and fees as low as possible in the future.

Thank you for your continued patronage and support.
