Sewer, water rates adjusted for 2019


Residents will see a slight adjustment in their water and sewer rates beginning with the January 2019 utility bill, which will arrive in mailboxes in February. 

The Spring Hill Water District — which includes about 2/3 of all households in Spring Hill — water rate will increase 21 cents to $8.55 per 1,000 gallons. The monthly service charge will also increase from $12.62 from $12.94. 

The sewer rate will also increase from $16.59 from $17.00 for the first 2,000 gallons and from $8.45 to $8.65 for each additional 1,000 gallons for a total increase of 61 cents. The service charge will remain at $5. 

An internal rate study is prepared annually by City staff and presented to the City Council for consideration. The focus of the study is to identify areas of concern, determine whether the fund balances are adequate and to make a recommendation regarding current rates. Rates were adjusted due to a price increase in water from the State of Kansas as well as to fund future projects and maintenance to water and wastewater facilities. 

The most recent sewer rate increase occurred in January 2018 with a decreased service charge in January 2017. The last increase for water was in January 2018.   

Rate changes were approved at the Dec. 13 City Council meeting.
