Because of careful planning and numerous efficiency efforts, the Water Services Department is proposing no water or sewer rate increases for 2014.

For the second year in a row, the average single-family residential water bill will remain at $37.75 per month, and the average single-family residential sewer bill will remain at $20.71 per month, both among the lowest in the nation.

“When it comes to city services, you can’t get much more essential than water and trash collection—and the fact that we are able to keep customer service levels high, without an increase to our residents, is a testament to the way Phoenix does business,” said Vice Mayor Bill Gates, chairman of the Finance, Efficiency and Economy Subcommittee. “This is another example of the way innovations and efficiencies protect our hardworking taxpayers.”
