Included with your newsletter is the District’s 2019 Rate Survey. The survey shows District water and sewer rates in comparison with the rates of neighboring jurisdictions. The rates reflect what an average single-family residential customer would pay per month.
District rates include a 1.75% increase in water rates and 2.75% rate increase in sewer rates over the rates charged in 2018. Rates within Federal Way include the 7.75% excise tax imposed by the City of Federal Way (the actual rate is slightly higher to include additional public utility taxes owed to the State of Washington
on City taxes).
