 Rates

  • $18.00 minimum for the first 5,000 gallons used;

Rates per thousand gallons, as of the following dates, for water service in excess of the 5,000 gallons included in the minimum monthly user charge:

The Godley Public Water District believes that increasing rates based on water usage promotes water conservation, especially important in times of limited water supplies or high treatment costs. Less water use means less wastewater. Increasing rates based on water usage allows the Water District to provide a reasonable amount of water at a reasonable price and charges a premium for those using more.
