City Water Rates Increasing

City Water Rates Increasing

The City's water rates will reflect a 3% increase with the April 2020 utility invoices. The typical four-person Milford household will notice an increase of about 75 cents per month of water usage. Other utility costs for sewer, stormwater, and garbage collection will remain unchanged.

The City regularly compares water rates to more than 60 local governments in the region.  The rate increase puts residents in the median range for comparable local governments. 

The additional water revenue is needed to cover the anticipated costs of ongoing improvements to the City’s aging water delivery infrastructure.
