Water Rates Increasing

Water Rates Increasing

September's water bill will be slightly higher for Wichita Falls residents.

Councilors voted Tuesday morning to raise rates 8.5 percent.

It's to help pay for the emergency water reuse project and help fund the state mandated program requiring water mains to be flushed monthly.

It breaks down to about three dollars more a month for the average customer.

Residents can expect notification about the change on their August bill.
