St. Pete Residents to See Higher Water, Sewer Rates
Sanitation and stormwater fees will appear on the October bill. Rate increases for water, wastewater and reclaimed water will appear on November bills.
ST. PETERSBURG – City Council members have voted to increase water, wastewater, reclaimed water, stormwater, and sanitation utility rates.
Utility rate increases will take effect Oct. 1.
FY19 Rates (per 4,000 gallons of water/wastewater) are as follows:
Water – $30.52 (a 3.75 percent increase over the current $29.43)
Wastewater – $45.64 (8.25 percent increase over the current $42.15)
Reclaimed water – $29.59 (10.75 percent increase over the current $26.72)
Stormwater – $11 (10 percent increase over the current $10)
Sanitation (with Recycling) – $26.61 (5.25 percent increase over the current $25.28)
The total change for all is a 7.32 percent increase, or $6.91 from $133.58 to $143.36.
Customers will see adjustments to monthly sanitation and stormwater fees on their October bills; while rate increases for water, wastewater and reclaimed water will appear on their November bills.
Rates will help fund investments in aging infrastructure; as well as help in lowering the city’s cash-to-debt ratio, which will save the city hundreds of millions of dollars in interest rates over the next few decades, officials said.
