IMPORTANT NOTICE
New Water Rates Take Effect January 1, 2017

Effective January 1, 2017, Tigard's water customer charge and water usage charge will increase by 3.25 percent. Rate increases apply to all water customers, including non-residential customers.

These increases only apply to the water service portion of your Tigard utility bill. Other fees and charges (related to storm water, sewer, etc.) may be included in your bill; these charges are not affected by this rate increase.

The average residential customer can expect water charges to increase by $1 to $2 per month. Monthly residential water charges consist of:
  • A fixed customer charge is based on the size of the customer's water meter. The fixed charge is the price that all customers pay, regardless of how much water they use. For the typical, single-family, residential customer with a 5/8-inch water meter, the fixed charge is $27.54.
  • The water usage charge is based on the amount of water used. Water usage is measured in hundreds of cubic feet (CCF). One CCF equals 748 gallons. The price per CCF is divided into tiers and increases as usage reaches the second and third tier.
  • Tiered rates for the average, single-family, residential customer are as follows:
Tier Number of CCFs Consumed Price Per CCF
Tier 1  1 to 6 CCFs * $3.56
Tier 2 7 to 15 CCFs * $5.20
Tier 3 16 or more CCFs * $5.95
* 1 CCF = 100 cubic feet or 748 gallons.

An example—if a customer uses 8 CCFs, his water usage charge would be $31.76, or 6 CCFs at $3.56 ($21.36) plus 2 CCFs at $5.20 ($10.40). A booster pump charge is assessed to customers who reside in higher elevation zones and is based on the size of the customer's water meter. This charge recovers the additional costs of energy and pump capacity necessary to move water to a higher elevation. 

For the typical, single-family, residential customer with a 5/8-inch water meter, the booster pump charge is $5.15.
