Proposed Water Rate Increases
Why is Sunrise Water Authority contemplating a rate increase now?
The Board of Commissioners and staff take great pride in serving all of you. Our primary mission remains unchanged - to provide you a quality product through an efficient and customer focused public utility. We are committed to assuring that your hard-earned money is put to work for you. These changes will support our operations, provide sustained renewal of critical infrastructure and strengthen the overall financial position of the agency. The main drivers now are:
- Replacement - System components wear out and require replacement. Addressing these issues assures system integrity and reliability.
- Cash Financing Projects - The Board of Commissioners has prioritized cash financing infrastructure projects. Thus eliminating unnecessary interest charges on borrowed money.
- Rising Costs of Operations - Electricity, natural gas, materials, equipment and labor costs all continue to rise.
