Water/Sewer Rate Increase: November 2016
On January 19, 2016, the Village of Algonquin approved Ordinance 2016-O-03 which increases water and sewer utility rates effective November 2016. The rate adjustment was the result of a Comprehensive Water and Sewer Rate and Fee Study, completed in January 2016 by RHMG Engineers, Inc. The rate and fee study evaluated capital infrastructure needs as identified in the Comprehensive Water Master Plan (2012) and the Wastewater Facility Plan Update (2014). The Village carefully considered information gathered by its licensed operators, engineers, financial consultants, and the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.
The Village is committed to providing safe, reliable drinking water to its customers. The following Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and reports/studies are provided to help further explain the need for the rate increase, as well as its impacts to our customers. As always, please contact us with any questions you may have regarding the Algonquin Water and Sewer Utilities.
