Water & Sewer Rate Adjustments
In December 2015 the City of Morgan Hill completed an analysis of the city’s current water and waste-water rate structure. For more information regarding the study, the adopted rates, and the process, please visit the Rate Adjustments 2016 web page.
Effective July 1, 2018, the Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) will increase the groundwater extraction fees that it charges the City of Morgan Hill. The production fee increase by the SCVWD exceeds what the City anticipated and had built into its rate structure. Therefore, the City will be passing on the recent unanticipated costs to its water customers.This increase to the volumetric charge is approximately $0.10 per unit (hcf) of water consumed. which is still less than $.004 per gallon for this valuable resource. For the average customer who consumes 14 units per month, this increase will amount to an additional $1.40 per month. This nominal water rate increase for Morgan Hill customers will take effect August 1, 2018.
