What is a temporary drought surcharge?

To cover the costs associated with the drought and ensure your drinking water system is well maintained and operated, we are proposing a temporary, additional charge to the quantity cost of the water you use. The proposed temporary drought surcharge is 15%, or approximately $0.79 per 748 gallons. The temporary drought surcharge would remain in place until the drought no longer exists.
