Why does CWD charge for water?

The CWD ratepayers are charged for water based on the cost of providing service to our customers. Revenue from water rates covers the cost of operations, maintenance, infrastructure replacement, customer service, and other necessary programs. The money collected from rates is used to pay for expenses directly related to providing water to your home or business.
