About Water and Wastewater Rate Increases

Effective January 1, 2019, the City of Waco water and sewer rates will increase.  (See the complete list of new rates below.)

WHY ARE THE RATES INCREASING?

Rate increases are necessary to fund vitally important water and wastewater infrastructure projects. Each of these projects meets a critical need, making them essential to the city’s ability to continue providing high-quality water and wastewater services to all customers.

Just a few of the infrastructure projects underway are:

  • Complete replacement of the, 100-year-old, Hillcrest Ground Storage and Pump Station
  • New water lines in the Chapel Rd. – Old Lorena Rd. – Spring Valley Rd. area
  • Rebuilding of Waco Metropolitan Area Regional Sewerage System (WMARSS) Transfer Lift Station and extension of force-main sewer line to WMARSS Central Treatment Plant

For more information about Waco's infrastructure projects, visit: www.BuildingWaco.com

Waco’s rates remain competitive and, in many cases are lower than surrounding and comparatively sized cities.
