Funding

The city's Water Fund includes the Operations and Maintenance Fund and the Capital Improvement Fund. The former includes divisions for administration, maintenance, plant operations, and capital outlay. It is funded primarily from user charges for the sale of water. The capital improvements that are expansion-only are supported by general facility fees charged for new connections to the water system. This fund's primary purpose is to provide increased capacity to the water system due to growth.
