INFORMATION ABOUT WATER RATES

Falls Water’s rate structure is mandated by the Idaho Public Utilities Commission (IPUC). It is based upon the direct costs of supplying water to our customers. A portion of the charge is called the minimum charge and is currently $17.75 for 5/8” and ¾” meters in our service area and includes up to 12,000 gallons of water (See rates and rules link for rate information for larger meters). The minimum charge covers the fixed costs of providing service and a portion of the “commodity cost” of water service. The fixed costs are those costs of providing water service, which are not related to the amount of water used. One example is billing cost. The commodity costs are those costs, such as electrical pumping power, which vary directly with the amount of water provided. The balance of the commodity costs are included in the excess use charge of $0.689 per thousand gallons for water used above the 12,000 gallons included in the base charge. Most of the water used under the excess use charge is generally for lawn watering during the summer months.

Falls Water’s rates are among lowest rates of any IPUC regulated water systems in Idaho. We achieve low rates by controlling costs, while working to assure quality of service. The chart below shows Falls Water Co., Inc. metered charges compared to other metered water systems:
