Rates & Fees

Mesa Water is committed to providing its customers with high-quality, safe and reliable water.

Mesa Water collects a Basic Charge based on the size of the customer’s water meter. In the past, the average single-family home typically required a 5/8" meter. Presently, to support fire sprinklers, which the state requires for all newly-constructed and significantly-reconstructed or remodeled homes, the typical meter size is now 1”. Please contact our Engineering department for more information about meter sizing for your project.

In addition to the Basic Charge, customers are charged a Usage Charge, as shown below, of water used. A unit of water is equivalent to 100 cubic feet or 748 gallons.

Mesa Water is wholly reliant on rates for the operations and maintenance of the District. Mesa Water does not charge or levy property taxes.

Bills are due and payable upon presentation and become past due 25 days after the date of billing.
