Utility Rates

The Folsom City Council approved the 2019-2020 rate increases in December 2019. The rate increases for water, wastewater, and solid waste services will help maintain financial resiliency, provide funding for infrastructure maintenance and rehabilitation projects, and allow the city to comply with current and future unfunded mandates—all of which ensures high levels of customer service and reliable utility services.

The city provides water, wastewater (sewer), and solid waste (trash) service to more than 22,000 residential and non-residential customers. Monthly water, wastewater, and solid waste rates paid by customers are the primary source of revenue for the city’s Water, Wastewater, and Solid Waste Divisions. Rates fund utility operations and maintenance, including but not limited to replacement of utility vehicles, equipment and supplies, compliance with changing State and federal regulations, repair and replacement of existing and aging utility infrastructure, and debt service for previous capital improvements to the city’s water treatment plant and facilities.
