Novelty Hill Rate Drivers

What are the Water and Wastewater Rate Drivers?

What influences the Water and Wastewater Rates:

This City of Redmond provides water and wastewater services to our customers.  To assure continued dependability for users, these distribution systems must be maintained, upgraded and replaced.  New facilities must also be provided as additional demands are made on these systems.  The cost of providing these services is recovered through user fees and rates.  

Regional Costs

Purchased Water - 100% of the water consumed by Novelty Hill customers is purchased from Cascade Water Alliance.

Wastewater Treatment - King County Metro charges Redmond to treat the wastewater generated from our customers. Their wastewater treatment rates are passed directly to our customers.

These two regional costs make up a significant portion of our customers' water and wastewater charges.
