City of Ashland Water Rate Study

The purpose of this Study is two-fold: (1) to ensure that different customer types pay their fair share of water system costs by performing a cost of service analysis and (2) to collect sufficient revenues to adequately fund the water system in a safe manner; providing the residents and businesses of the City with a clean, safe and reliable potable water system that meets State and Federal requirements, by projecting revenue needs and determining a supporting rate schedule.

This report provides an explanation and justification of redistribution of water system costs to customer types and calculated water rates through fiscal year ending 2022.
