Clean Drinking Water Fee and Water Protection Fee

The Water Protection Fee is paid by city water departments, rural water districts and any other public water suppliers. Collectively all of these organizations are called ‘public water supply systems.’ The Water Protection Fee is 3.2 cents ($0.032) per 1,000 gallons of water sold at retail through mains, pipes, or lines.

The Clean Water Drinking Fee is paid by city water departments, rural water districts and any other public suppliers. Collectively all of these organizations are called ‘public water supply systems.’ The Clean Drinking Water Fee is three cents ($0.03) per 1,000 gallons of water sold retail through mains, pipes, or lines. The law specifically forbids the public water supply systems from adding this fee to their customers’ water bill.

The Clean Drinking Water Fee and Water Protection Fee are both reported quarterly on the same form (Form WP-1).
