Water Rates

The Village of Alsip residents and businesses can best be provided water services by a self-sustaining water enterprise that is adequately financed with rates and charges based on sound accounting, engineering, financial, and economic principles. Revenues from water and sewer rates and user fees are designed to enable the water department to provide for the full cost of service including:

  • Annual operation and maintenance expenses
  • Capital costs (e.g., debt service for capital improvements)
  • Adequate working capital and required reserves

To ensure the coverage of operating expenses, planned capital improvements and to maintain necessary fund reserves going forward, the Village of Alsip water rates have been increased as follows:
