Every other year WIFA conducts a rate survey to provide information on residential water
rates, and assist utilities with their pricing efforts. The survey information is
compiled into a report, which provides a detailed examination of current statewide
water and wastewater (sewer) pricing and financial trends.
WIFA again partnered with the Environmental Finance
Center (EFC) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to conduct
the survey and produce the report. The research summary report,
2017 Arizona Water & Wastewater Rates Report, analyzes residential drinking water and wastewater data from nearly
91% of Arizona’s water/wastewater utilities.
The report was expanded in 2015 to include commercial drinking water and wastewater data,
in addition to reclaimed water, and, new this year, stormwater rates.
