Water and sewer rates going up January 1

November 26, 2019 – FYI

Please be aware that there will be a water and sewer rate increase effective January 1, 2020. The City & Borough of Juneau Assembly in August approved increases to both the water and sewer utility rates. The 4 percent rate increase will go into effect January 1, 2020. Find the new rates here.

Please expect the changes to your billing statements. All Bill-Pay customers will need to update their accounts to reflect the new rates in order to stay current.

Following the January 1, 2020 increase, there will be subsequent 2 percent increases in July 2021, July 2022, July 2023, and July 2024. These increases keep pace with inflationary cost increases. Revenue generated goes toward costs for operating and maintaining major water and wastewater infrastructure systems, debt financing from Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC) loans, and capital projects directed at failing infrastructure or regulatory compliance.
