2022 Rate Notification

The decision to raise rates is an issue every responsible utility must face. Over the last four years, Northshore Utility District (NUD) has not raised water rates and only raised its sewer rates once. NUD will not be raising water rates for 2022. This is possible, to a large extent, because of NUD’s unique water supply contract with Seattle Public Utilities (SPU).

However, this is not the case for sewer. King County Wastewater Treatment Division raised its cost by 4%. This increase is being treated as pass-through cost to District customers. This decision was reached after conducting two open public hearings held on March 7, 2022, and March 21, 2022. The 2022 Rate Resolution was adopted and applied to all utility bills sent after March 15, 2022, regardless of when service is rendered.
