Why are my rates changing?

One of our responsibilities at BWA is to protect the health of our community through wastewater (sanitary sewer) collection. That’s why we hired outside consultants to examine our long-term financial needs so that we may continue maintaining and upgrading pipes and equipment throughout the system. To help ensure that we can make these investments, we are following their advice by increasing wastewater rates by 6.5% on May 1, but drinking water rates will not change at this time.
