US Conference of Mayors' Water Costs Survey


The U.S. Conference of Mayors is conducting a critical affordability survey of the average annual household costs of providing drinking water, sanitary sewers, combined storm and sanitary sewers and flood control systems in our communities.  The U.S. Conference of Mayors will be using this information to inform members of Congress on the real costs to our cities of operating and maintaining the nation’s critical utility systems.  The U.S. Conference of Mayors is currently working with members of Congress on potential legislation, including guidance on the affordability of federal mandates and providing additional funding to communities.


The U.S. Conference of Mayors compiled the information received from cities throughout the State into a report entitled Public Water Cost Per Household: Assessing Financial Impacts of EPA Feasibility Criteria in California Cities.  The document can be found here.   


The U.S. Conference of Mayors may update the document as it receives responses from additional cities.  The SGVCOG will post these updates as well.
