Notice of Water Rate Increase

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on August 17, 2021, the City Council (the “Council”) of the City of East Helena, Montana (the “City”) adopted a Resolution of Intention of the City of East Helena, Montana to Increase Rates for the Users of the Municipal Water System.

The City utilizes an equivalent dwelling unit methodology for imposing rates and charges, which is based on the size of the water line or meter servicing each connection.  A 3/4 inch or 5/8 inch service, which is the standard service for single family residential users, is 1 Equivalent Dwelling Unit (EDU).

The City currently charges users of the water system a Base Rate Charge of $30 per EDU per month, as shown below:
Water Line/Meter SizeMultiplierBase Rate Charge

$853.20

In addition, the City also charges users of the water system a Varied Rate of $1.10 per 1,000 gallons of water or portion thereof used per user per month. All users connected to the water system are charged the sum of the Base Rate Charge plus the Varied Rate.
 
In addition, the City charges a monthly surcharge of $20 per month for the months of May through October for each unmetered irrigation hydrant (the “Irrigation Hydrant Surcharge”).
 
Commencing with the January 2022 billing, the City will increase the Base Rate Charge to $43.25 per EDU per month (the “Proposed Base Rate Charge”), as shown below:
Water Line/Meter SizeMultiplierProposed Base Rate Charge

In addition, the City will increase the Varied Rate to $1.35 per l,000 gallons of water or portion thereof used per user per month (the “Proposed Varied Rate”).

Commencing with the January 2022 billing, the City will charge all users connected to the water system the sum of the Proposed Base Rate Charge plus the Proposed Varied Rate.

The City will also increase the Irrigation Hydrant Surcharge to $28.85 per month for the months of May through October.

For a residential user with a ¾ inch line using 3,000 gallons of water per month, the proposed monthly charge ($43.25 + $4.05 = $47.30) represents an increase of approximately 42% over the current monthly charge ($30.00 + $3.30 = $33.30). For a user with an unmetered irrigation hydrant, the proposed Irrigation Hydrant Surcharge represents an increase of approximately 44.25% over the current Irrigation Hydrant Surcharge.

Public meetings and Public hearings were held in 2019, 2020, and 2021 culminating in a public hearing on the proposed rate increase on September 7, 2021, and a final Public Hearing on Tuesday, October 5, 2021.
