A report detailing proposed changes to the City of Fort Worth’s water and wastewater rates is available for public review and comment through Sept. 21. The report can be viewed via the city’s Water Department Web site at or, starting Wednesday, at each of the Fort Worth libraries.

The City Council may act as soon as Sept. 22 on the rate recommendations. If approved by council members, the rate increases take effect Jan. 1.

The recommended increases would raise the typical residential customer’s water and wastewater charges by $1.10 monthly. The impact is from proposed changes to the both the water and wastewater monthly service charges. The actual changes are based on the size of the water meter. The larger the meter, higher the monthly increase.

The only proposed volume rate change is for customers with dedicated irrigation meters. The proposed change would bring Tier 1 and Tier 2 of irrigation class equal to Tiers 2 and 3 of the residential class, respectively. The existing irrigation rates are $2.56 for Tier 1 and $3.01 for Tier 2. If adopted, the new rates would be $2.66 for Tier 1 and $3.28 for Tier 2.
