[ARCHIVED] Water and Sewer Rate Fee Study

The delivery of safe and reliable water is of upmost importance to the City. It’s been several years since Brea last completed a comprehensive water study to determine the costs of delivering water. Establishing water rates is complex and highly regulated, and requires gathering extensive data to determine an appropriate rate structure. The last water rate study was done in 2015. A fee study for wastewater rates was last done in 2006, and Water Impact Fees were last studied in 2002. The current water rate structure was adopted in February 2016 and has not increased since July 2017. Brea has been able to keep rates flat due to strategic bond refinancing, as well as purchasing water rights.

The goal of this upcoming rate and fee study is to ensure that the revenues cover the cost of services, meet the debt coverage and reserve requirements, and provides revenue for future capital improvement projects. The study will also address drought conditions which could affect rates. The City has contracted with NewGen Strategies & Solutions to conduct the comprehensive rate and fee study.
