2020 Utility Rate Study

In May of 2019, the City of Moscow contracted with FCS Group to assist in a Water and Sewer Utility rate study. Rate studies are conducted periodically to assure that the costs of services are in alignment with the revenue to the utilities, and that said costs are allocated in as equitable a manner as possible among the users of the system. The information on this page lays out the basics of Moscow’s system, and explains proposed rate adjustments. The structure that follows has been presented to a Citizen Rate Committee (CRC). After analyzing the data, the CRC recommended adoption of the proposed structure. We wanted to be sure all of our residents had a chance to provide feedback, so a public comment period took place from June 22, 2020 through July 2, 2020. Responses can be found in the Customer Questions and Answers section of this page.
