Important Rate Information
As a non-profit public utility, Fairfax Water is mandated to charge only for the actual cost of providing
water service to our customers. We conduct Cost of Service studies to evaluate this cost and look closely
at population projections, average per capita water usage, and projected inflation rates. For example, one
of the major challenges we face is probably familiar to you - the ever-rising cost for fuel and power.
Fairfax Water has a Strategic Financial Planning Model and we ensure that any proposed increases in rates,
fees, and charges are consistent with this model. Most importantly, we evaluate the proposed increases against
these guiding principles:
- Are the proposed increases fair and reasonable?
- Were they derived from empirical data?
- Will they be applied equitably to our customers?
