Westminster City Council Votes to Reduce Water Rates for Residential Ratepayers

Westminster, CO – Westminster City Council voted (5-2) Monday, February 28, 2022, to reduce water rates and increase the consumption limits of the city’s three-tier water rate structure for residential customers. This new rate structure was developed through extensive financial modeling and will provide immediate financial relief ahead of the irrigation season when residents typically receive their highest water bills. The average resident will save $86 annually. The new rate structure will be effective June 1, 2022.
 

 

 

 

The new rate structure will continue to provide $24 million annually to the utility’s capital improvement program to maintain and improve Westminster’s water infrastructure. The new rate structure also includes $150 million to invest in a rehabilitated or replacement drinking water treatment facility in the future. City Council will take a second vote on March 14, 2022, to finalize the new rate structure.
