Denver Water’s rate changes, approved by the Denver Board of Water Commissioners in October, take effect Jan. 1, 2022, and help pay for critical upgrades and projects to keep the water system operating efficiently. The rate changes will increase bills for most single-family customers by a range of about 50 cents to $1.30 per month, depending on where they live and if they use water at similar volumes to 2021. For details about this rate change and the projects it will fund, go to denverwater.org/Rates for more information.
If you are experiencing a financial hardship, Denver Water partners with Mile High United Way to provide assistance.
If a household qualifies for the Colorado Low-Income Energy Assistance Program, the new Low-Income Housing Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP) has an opportunity to help with water bills. This emergency federal program helps residents pay their water and wastewater bills, avoid shut-offs and support reconnections related to non-payment.
