Local Proposals and Projects
1. Tucson Water Rate Change.
At the June 22, 2021, meeting of the Tucson Mayor and Council, Option 7 was unanimously adopted for Unincorporated Pima County customers, beginning December 1, 2021. This will implement a 10% differential rate on the Base rate, plus escalating tiers based on water usage. See the City of Tucson webpage on Differential Water Rates for more details.
At the June 22 meeting, it was also moved that all additional revenues that will be generated by the adopted differential rates will be retained entirely within the utility and will be used for the following three purposes:
a) Infrastructure maintenance and upgrades to enhance water delivery from the City limits to outside the City limits,
b) Climate Resiliency and Water Sustainability for recharge, retention and reclamation projects (primarily outside the City limits) and enhancing the tree canopy throughout the entire Tucson water system, and
c) Financial resiliency in the form of expansion of the low-income program and a one time pay down of eligible delinquent accounts that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19.
It was further moved to direct staff to complete a broad cost of service analysis, that is based upon the rates in Option 7 and further considers the economic and environmental benefit to the Region; considers annexation and incorporation, and recognizes that, as the owner of the Utility, the City bears risks and liabilities that Pima County does not.
