Montgomery County MUD No. 46 Notice of Retail Water and Sewer Rate Increase
THE WOODLANDS, TX -- We have approved a retail rate increase, effective January 2020. Wholesale rates from the San Jacinto River Authority / Woodlands Division increased about 4 percent in September 2019. The retail rate increase is intended to recover much of the additional wholesale water and sewer expense – about $250,000 annually.
Listed below is a comparison of the previous and new rates:
Base Residential Water Rate
Base Residential Sewer Service Rate
Base Commercial Water Rate
Base Commercial Sewer Service
This rate change will increase the average monthly bill, assuming residential usage of 10,000 gallons water and 6,000 gallons sewer, from $82.77 to $85.28 – about 3 percent.
In October 2019, we chose not to use tax revenue to offset the wholesale rate increase and adopted a lower effective rate of $0.20974 per $100 in value for 2019 compared to $0.21250 per $100 for tax year 2018. This saved the average taxpayer about $12 for the year.
