The City of Baytown wants to make sure you are aware about a possible change to your water bill. Effective December 1, the City is increasing rates for some residents due to increased operating costs, necessary equipment upgrades and the overall maintenance of the system.
Important note: Some residents will not see a change in their bill.
How Does It Impact Me?
2,000 gallons or less inside city limits:
A household that uses 2,000 gallons of water or less will not see an increase to their bill.
2,001 gallons to 5,000 gallons inside city limits:
Larger households are closer to this amount. A household using between 2,001 and 5,000 gallons of water will see an increase of $3.25, per 1,000 gallons, on their water/sewer rates.
Important note: Rates will be slightly different for non-residential customers and those who live outside of the city limits. See included graphics for more details.
Water Rates Discussed
City Council approved the necessary changes at the last council meeting after discussing the increases back on July 14.
