Apache Junction Water District is committed to providing safe and reliable drinking water to our customers. With this commitment comes the responsibility to ensure that our water system remains economically sustainable.
Our Water Rates consist of:
- Base Service Charge, which is based on water meter size, and
- Consumption Charge, which is based on the amount of water used.
AJWD uses a tiered water rate structure so the price for water increases as the volume used increases. This provides a financial incentive for customers to use water more efficiently because high volume consumption is charged at a higher rate.
Apache Junction Water District makes every effort to minimize the effect of rate adjustments. We care about our customers and the potential impact any adjustment may cause. The approach we take is reasonable, sensible, and responsible.
If you have any questions regarding our rates, please call the Apache Junction Water District’s office at (480) 982-6030.
Our current Water Rates are available online in PDF format HERE , or upon request.
As part of our annual budget and rate setting process, due to increased operating expenses and equipment replacement costs, it has become necessary to adjust our rates. The new rates became effective, and were included in billing cycles, as of October 1, 2017.
Proposed changes for 2018-2019 Water Rates HAVE NOT YET BEEN ESTABLISHED. When available proposed rates will be presented to the Apache Junction Water District Board of Directors. The proposed rates will be viewable through this website..
A public hearing will be advertised and held for Water Board review and discussion of the proposed 2018-2019 Rates during May or June, 2018.
