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 annually in the VT Water and Wastewater Rates Dashboard (Coming Soon), downloadable spreadsheets, and a summary report.
Surveys included rates data in 2021 (182 utilities).
