By policy, every 3 years, the City of Flagstaff evaluates its long-term financial plan for its water, sewer, and reclaimed water rates and fees, as well as capacity fees. As part of such an evaluation, Stantec consultants are conducting a rate study, cost-of-service analysis, and fees analysis to determine the rates necessary to cover the operation, maintenance, and replacement of essential infrastructure — treatment plants, pipelines, reservoirs, wells, and stormwater facilities — while maintaining our commitment to affordability.
Stantec is about halfway through the analyses and providing regular updates to the Water Commission and City Council. Water Commission agendas are available at this website and City Council agendas from this link. Visit cleanwaterflagstaff.com for the latest information on this rate study.
Any increases would become effective on September 1, 2024. The last increase in water, wastewater, and reclaimed water fees was January 1, 2020.
