2024 Utility Rates Help Maintain Greeley’s Infrastructure

City of Greeley Approves Water Utility Rates for 2024

The City of Greeley, through its Water and Sewer Board, approved new water utility rates for 2024. The rates take effect Jan. 1, 2024. The rates support ongoing investments necessary to provide residents with safe, reliable, and great-tasting water.

These rate increases help replace aging assets to comply with new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state regulations; invest in infrastructure to transmit stormwater safely out of problem areas prone to flooding; and add limited additional staff to operate and maintain its extensive water, sewer, and stormwater infrastructure.

Although every customer experience will vary, the average residential bill will increase approximately $7.84 per month:

  • $2.53 for water—Supports important projects for water supply and storage. Helps fund the location and removal of water service lines that contain lead.
  • $2.80 for sewer—Ensures compliance with environmental regulations for wastewater treatment.
  • $2.51 for stormwater—Upgrades storm drains to prevent flooding and protect our rivers.

Why the Increase

» The water rate increase allows for continued investment to replace aging infrastructure. The City of Greeley’s water is lead-free. However, lead can get into water that travels through older pipes and plumbing fixtures made of lead. The city has replaced all known lead lines owned by the city. It is now working with customers in inspect and replace any remaining lead water service lines on customer properties.

» The sewer rate increase allows the city to meet an unfunded environmental regulatory mandate by the state and federal government to reduce algae-forming nutrients released in treated wastewater. Greeley and all other municipalities across Colorado are obligated to comply with these stricter regulations, which are increasing costs to wastewater customers across the state.

» The stormwater rate increase will replace aging and undersized drainage systems across the city and improve public safety. Public Works’ multi-year plan to construct improvements will help protect your property and our community.
