PAWSD 2019 Draft Budget

PAWSD 2018 Water Rate Study

PAWSD 2018 Wastewater Rate Study

PAWSD 2017 Consumer Confidence Report

     Through budget tightening and planning, the Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District (District) has been able to operate without a rate increase since 2014.  In 2018, the District hired a consultant to perform a rate study with the objective of assuring the District is able to meet its future obligations of delivering high quality drinking water as well as treating and safely discharging wastewater through its service area.  Due to increases in costs outside of the District's control such as electricity, insurance and materials, the completed rate study recommended a rate increase.  The District Board of Directors reviewed the Rate Study and through consultation with District staff and the consultant has determined the rate increase as shown in the table below is the most cost effective method of meeting future obligations.
