City of Phoenix: Proposed Rate Increase for Phoenix Water Services, Stormwater Excise Tax

The Phoenix Water Services Dept. is proposing a rate increase to address rising costs for water and wastewater services. While the increase is necessary to meet inflationary pressures affecting utilities across the nation, Phoenix will still have some of the most affordable water services compared to other large cities, and customers who conserve water will be able to lessen the impact of the higher rates. There is also a request to increase the Stormwater Excise Tax to fund the City's compliance with new requirements for preventing pollution from entering waterways.
