2022 Rate Adjustment

2022 Rate Adjustments

Granger-Hunter Improvement District (GHID) is proposing rate adjustments for 2022 as part of a 10-year financial plan to meet GHID’s current and future water and wastewater system needs.

These rates are based on a 2021 Master Plan and Rate Study to provide direction on how to manage and ensure that infrastructure investment is meeting regulations, provides reliable services, keeps pace with population growth, and protects public health and the environment. This 10-year plan also includes a plan for long-term adjustments to meet future needs.

Background information on pending rate adjustments can be found here.

 

What are the 2022 Rates?

WATER

GHID will increase the 3rd tier water rate and add a 4th tier. Water tier adjustments are designed to encourage water conservation during the summer months and reflect the true cost of providing higher use service.
