As our city’s utility system ages, more and more repairs and replacements are required. Westminster experiences some of the same increases in costs that homeowners do. Maintaining aging systems is expensive, though Westminster is able to do it and keep water and sewer rates at about average for the region. 

Please watch these videos, which give detailed information on what your rates pay for.
