PAWSD 2017 Consumer Confidence Report

PAWSD 2018 Drought Management Plan

 

Through Budget tightening and planning The Pagosa Area Water and Sanitation District (District) has been able to operate the District without a rate increase sense 2014.  In 2018 the District hired a consultant to perform a Rate Study.  The objective of the rate study is to assure the District is able to meet its future obligations of delivering high quality drinking water and treating and safely discharging wastewater through its service area.  Unfortunately due to increase in costs outside of the Districts 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.
