Water and wastewater rate setting is one of local government’s most important environmental and public health responsibilities. The EFC and the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation conducted surveys of what water and wastewater utilities in the state of Vermont charge in rates. The EFC compiles the rates data with information on utilities’ Enterprise Fund key financial performance indicators, system characteristics, community socioeconomics, and other data. The Vermont DEC funds this work to provide utilities across the state with the most comprehensive resources that can be used for benchmarking, rate-setting, financial decision-making, and communication. The information is compiled in the VT Water and Wastewater Rates Dashboard and downloadable spreadsheets of rate structures and monthly bill amounts.
There are 182 utilities included in the 2021-22 survey.
Tables of Rates Data
Spreadsheets of data are available to download. The rates data tables list each utility’s residential and non-residential water, wastewater, and residential irrigation rate structure details, inside and outside town limits, as well as the monthly-equivalent bills computed at different consumption levels. All rates data displayed on the VT Water and Wastewater Rates Dashboard are available in these files.
