Chandler Utility Rates
  
Chandler's monthly water and wastewater rates remain among the lowest in the Valley.

Municipal water and wastewater plants and operations are funded entirely through customer charges and development fees. As system maintenance, energy costs, or capital needs change, the Chandler City Council must consider changes in water and/or sewer rates to help maintain service levels.

The current water, wastewater and sewer rate structure went into effect on October 1, 2013, and the rates are among the lowest for all major Valley cities. Increases in wastewater, reclaimed water and some water fees and deposit charges related to utility billing were necessary to cover additional debt service costs and related operating cost due to expanded infrastructure needs. They will also maintain the financial integrity of the water/wastewater enterprise, including debt service coverage and cash reserve policy requirements over the next fiscal year.

Wastewater fees increased 9 percent and reclaimed water rates increased 18 percent. The primary users of reclaimed water are Home Owner Associations (HOA) and golf courses. Although the use of reclaimed water varies from one HOA to another, a survey of five HOAs showed that a typical homeowner would see an annual increase of between $1.30 and $1.54 per month for reclaimed water service. In addition, every Chandler single-family residential household's monthly Wastewater bill increased $2.00, still keeping Chandler's wastewater rate the lowest in the Valley.
