Did you know:
- MMWD has 889 miles of drinking water pipeline and a 147-square-mile service area?
- Out of each rate payer dollar, 81 cents go directly toward the cost of MMWD’s water system? That is, the collection, treatment and distribution of water; the maintenance of facilities; and the replacement of those facilities. The remaining 19 cents go toward protecting watershed lands and providing conservation programs and numerous customer services.
- MMWD’s rate increases over the last 20 years have averaged 2.57 percent, while the CPI (consumer price index) has increased 3.68 percent?
- MMWD’s conservation budget has tripled since 2005? It was $900,000 in 2005 and is $2.7 million in the current fiscal year.
These and other facts are available in the fact sheet section of MMWD’s website. Topics include long-term water supply, budget and rates, conservation programs and others.
