Shawnee Rural Water District No. 8 will be increasing water costs due to the price increase of our supplier. The increase will be on the February 1, 2021 water bill. The costs are:
Service Charge $15.95.
Water cost per 1000 gallons will go from $5.05 to $5.55
The District currently purchases wholesale water from the City of Topeka and from the Tri-District water facility. Shawnee Rural Water District No. 8 has worked diligently to keep costs as low as possible. Unfortunately due to the wholesale water purchase cost increases to the District we can no longer sustain the base operational costs and fund future infrastructure improvements without making adjustments.
The Board of Directors and Manager will continue working to keep water costs as fair and regionally competitive as possible for its customers.
