Washougal could use utility rate phase-in strategy
Low water users would see decreases
Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Some Washougal residents who live in single-family homes could see water rate decreases in 2014.
According to the final results of a rate study conducted by the FCS Group, 61 percent of the water bills for single family residences with three-quarter inch meters would be lower than current rates.
The current average bi-monthly bill for customers who use 10 ccf of water is $60.38. That could decrease to $58.21 next year. A proposed rate for 2015 would be $58.83.
One ccf equals 748 gallons.
