Water Rates

Fulton County’s rate schedule features a bi-monthly service charge and a volume charge for each utility. Fulton County uses an inclining water block structure for domestic users effective in the summer months of April through October. Residential Water Use is billed on a 3-tiered pricing system based on each domestic customer’s base consumption during the winter months of November through March. Outdoor water use meter readings are combined with indoor use in calculating the baseline winter water usage. For new residences, the base consumption is 16,200 gallons. Monthly customer service fees cover the overhead costs for meter reading, meter maintenance, and billing operations.

On April 19, 2017, the Board of Commissioners approved the 2016-2025 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) that outlined a series of improvements necessary throughout North and South Fulton to continue providing water and treating wastewater to the resident of our service areas. The County must provide funding for the capital improvement projects identified in that Program, and allocate costs to both existing and future customers.
