A large portion of your water bill (56%) goes toward replacing and repairing Westminster’s aging water and wastewater infrastructure. Personnel expenses, including both salaries and benefits, are significant (17%) because it takes about 130 employees to operate Westminster’s water and wastewater systems 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
