Rate Change Calculator

In order to implement the RCR program, investment will be made to construct the new facilities.  Since funding for water and sewer projects comes from users, we anticipate a 5-year period of higher than average rate increases. The increase is needed to construct the new facilities. Historically, through our contractual agreement with Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority (CCMWA), rates have been and would continue to increase at 4% a year for the next 20 years. With RCR, the rates are expected to increase by 8.75% for a period of 5 years and then stop (in 2021). This represents a 4.75% increase above the planned 4% CCMWA increase. Once the investment is made, there will be substantial long-term savings (beyond 2021) for Paulding County residents. For the average customer, the rate increases that will take place over the next 5 years will result in a water bill increase of approximately $2 to $4 per month each year. By implementing the RCR Program, over a 10-year period, rates would be less than if the reservoir was not constructed. And long term, by being able to produce its own water, Paulding County residents will save over $100 million in lower water rates.

Even with the anticipated rate increases, the cost of a glass of water remains very low. To see how your individual rates will be affected by the anticipated rate increases and the long term savings you will receive through the implementation of the RCR, enter your, current, average water usage from you water bill below.
