Water Rate Structure

Cedar City’s water rate structure is based on the current needs and usage of residents and businesses. The rates are designed to encourage wise use of our water and conservation.

The Water Division works around the clock to provide top quality water to every tap. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources (which are the heart of our community), our way of life, and our children’s future.

Rate Increase effective July 1, 2022

On Wednesday, February 2, 2022, the Cedar City Council held a Public Hearing to discuss and review a phased water rate increase by tiered usage for residential and non-residential water utility customers. The water rate increase was approved and will take effect July 1, 2022 and will continue annually every July 1st through 2025 for residential customers and through 2026 for non-residential customers. The rate increase is intended to promote conservation and cover the cost of general operations and maintenance, purchasing of water rights, and capital costs to the City's water enterprise fund since the last rate increase in 2012. This includes covering the cost of increased water usage in our region.
