Current Rates, Charges, and Fees

Mount Pleasant Waterworks’ operations are funded by revenue from water and wastewater bills. Our rate structure is designed to recover costs and fund capital improvements. This is critical to our long-term financial and operational sustainability.

We retain a rate consultant to ensure that our rates meet cost recovery requirements and follow industry standards. Rates, fees and charges are approved by the Board of Commissioners.
