In response to rising wholesale water costs, the Town of Flower Mound is implementing a rate adjustment that will allow the Town to continue providing residents with a clean, safe, and reliable water supply and wastewater service, while also maintaining and building necessary utility infrastructure.
Rising Wholesale Water Costs
The Town of Flower Mound receives water from two (2) sources, the Upper Trinity Regional Water District (UTRWD) and Dallas Water Utilities (DWU). Most wholesale customers pay two fees, an annual "demand charge" and a per gallon "volume" rate.
Dallas Water Utilities (DWU)
The demand charge from DWU has historically increased at a normal inflationary rate.
Upper Trinity Regional Water District (UTRWD)
The demand charge from UTRWD has increased from $324,970 to $455,150 per million gallons annually since 2010. The 40.1 percent hike represents a $4.5 million increase to Flower Mound and positions the UTRWD's demand charge rate equal to a level the district was not projected to reach until 2022. UTRWD's volume rate will be $1.16 per 1,000 gallons. UTRWD was not projected to set rates at this level until after 2022.
