In order to maintain financial stability and ensure continued service quality, the Town of Esto will increase water utility rates effective January 1, 2024.

The new base rate inside town limits will be $29.91 up to 2,000 gallons. After that limit, the rate per 1,000 gallons will be $7.03 up to 5,000 gallons; $7.20 up to 8,000 gallons; $7.75 up to 12,000 gallons; and $8.15 for over 12,001 gallons.



The rates for outside town limits will be a $33.21 base rate up to 2,000 gallons and a per-1,000 gallon rate of $7.80 up to 5,000 gallons; $8.19 up to 8,000 gallons; $8.60 up to 12,000 gallons; and $9.04 for over 12,001 gallons.

The increase is a couple of dollars compared to existing prices. The current in-town base rate before the new price takes effect is $27.19, while outside town limits is $30.19. 

‘The proposed water rate adjustments have been carefully calculated to balance operational costs, maintenance expenses, and infrastructure investments with the least impact on residents,’ an ordinance adopting the new rates said.

The Esto Town Council unanimously approved the new rates.
