Water Rates

RWU is committed to serving all its customers with all the water they can beneficially use, at a reasonable pressure and delivery rate. Since we are rate supported, our water and sewer rates must generate enough revenue to operate the system and retire our outstanding indebtedness, plus fund a modest depreciation fund. Good clean water costs money. By conserving water, you conserve money.

Deposits
A deposit is required before water service may be established. We are sorry, we cannot accept letters of credit as a substitute. Deposits are nonnegotiable and cannot be waived. The deposit schedule is as follows:

Type of water service Amount
 Rental (apartment or house) $50.00 
 Home Owner $20.00 
 Commercial (5/8 inch service)  $50.00 
 Large Commercial $250.00 
See additional fees below.

Deposits are refundable when the customer of record leaves our service. Any amount due will be applied against the deposit. If the deposit covers your last bill, you will be sent a check for the remaining amount. If not, you will be billed for the amount due. If you leave Rogers and close your account, and you return to Rogers, a new deposit will be required.

Service Charges
There is a minimal, non-refundable charge for setting up service for all new accounts, or to have a service call at your address. Set up charges inside city limits is $10.00, outside city limits being $15.00. Any additional charge for after hours, weekends, and holidays will be assessed.

General Fees
There are certain fees that must be collected in order to provide a high level of service while controlling our rate structure. These are one-time, non refundable fees collected prior to the establishment of service. These are $25.00 for water service, and $30.00 for sewer service. If you transfer your service to another address on our system you will not have to pay these fees again.

Monthly Water Rates
Your water bill reflects the amount of water that was used during the last billing period, usually one month. Seniors (62 or over) are entitled to a reduced minimum bill rate.
