[ARCHIVED] Water Rate Increase Effective Jan. 1, 2021

Water Utility Service Line Fee of 66 begins Jan. 2021

The Town of Wellington is implementing part two of the water utility rate increase, effective Jan. 1, 2021. Users will see the adjustment on their bill arriving in February. The base rate will increase $31, from $35 to $66. The tier structure will remain the same with no increase. 


The Board of Trustees voted between three scenarios at the Sept. 22, 2020 meeting. After months of discussion, scenario two – a more gradual rate increase – was adopted to give users more time to prepare. This decision was made after an in-depth study, conducted by Woodard & Curran Inc., deemed the rate increase necessary to align the cost of service with the utility rate. This increase is the second of two for utility users. 


The cost to provide service has increase exponentially, prompting this change after 5 years without any prior rate increases.

3 Main Reasons for Increase:

  • Capital improvement to maintain State of Colorado water quality standards 
  • Rising cost to purchase water
  • Expanded infrastructure needed to meet current and growing demands

We are confident this rate increase is necessary for us to continue providing safe water to Wellington residents for years to come. If you have questions or would like to learn more click here to view additional information and view our Frequently Asked Questions.
