[ARCHIVED] Scheduled Water Rate Increase Coming In May

Geneva’s residential, business and industrial water and sewer customers should take note that scheduled annual rate increases will occur starting with their May utility bills.

To be in compliance with new state regulations, Geneva had to adjust its rates to help pay for an anticipated $12 million in improvements to its Wastewater Treatment Plant.

An average residential water user (700 cubic feet per month) will see an increase of $4 from $63 to $67 on their next combined water and sewer bill. The chart below outlines how the scheduled increases will impact customers going forward:

Water and Sewer Rates

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) is mandating all wastewater plants along the Fox River limit the amount of phosphorous being discharged into the water. Work at the Geneva Wastewater Treatment Plant is scheduled to begin this year.

The additional revenue also will provide the City with a dedicated funding source for future water and sewer capital projects such as water main replacement and sanitary sewer rehabilitation.

After assessing the needed improvements in 2015, the City Council approved phasing in the rate increase across the board to all its customers during the next several years. 

Full rate information is available on the City’s website. Questions can be directed to the City’s Public Works Department Water Division at 630-232-1551.
