Our Rates & Consumer Services

The Denver Board of Water Commissioners (Denver Water Board) adopted water rates for 2014 including a 3.7% increase effective with billings on and after January 1, 2014. The Consolidated Mutual Water Company (Consolidated) pays treated water rates applicable to Master Meter Distributors for about 65% of its total water distributed annually. Despite this increase Consolidated will continually strive to keep its rates as low as possible despite rate increases adopted by the Denver Water Board.


The Company's water rates are set as low as good service will permit, but sufficient to pay for operation, maintenance, debt service, depreciation, insurance, taxes, and the development of reserves for capital improvements. Effective with all billings on and after February 1, 2014, the rate charged for all water delivered will remain at $4.40 per thousand gallons (previous rate was $4.40) and all billings shall also include a bi-monthly fixed customer service charge which will  also remain unchanged based upon meter size in accordance with the following schedule (previous rates are shown in parentheses for making comparisons):
