Rate Increase

To meet the demand for water service we must make improvements to the water system including a 750,000-gallon elevated water storage tank, 10 magnetic flow meters, pressure transducers, SCADA improvements, 41,000 linear feet of waterline ranging in size from 6" through 12", a duplex booster pump station with a backup generator, and all fittings, valves, fencing, erosion control and incidentals needed to construct a working project.  Creek County RWD#2 applied for and received a $13,140,000.00 loan from the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund.  The district also applied for and was granted a $1,000,000.00 Loan Forgiveness Grant.  The remaining amount financed through the DWSRF will be around $12,140,000.00. The Budget Committee recommended, and the Board of Directors approved an initial $5.00 a month increase beginning August 1, 2023 for each membership, followed by an additional increase after the project is complete.  The increase will fund costs associated with the water system. This project is subject to the Build America, Buy America Act requirements.
