Wastewater and Stormwater Rate Adjustments

Wastewater and Stormwater Rate Adjustments


This past summer the City requested a water utility rate study be done by Ehlers Inc.  The Ehler's Utility Rate Study was presented to City Council on 11-13-23. This meeting can be viewed at HodagTV. 

Per the recommendation of the Ehler's Utility Rate Study, on November 27, 2023, Rhinelander City Council adjusted the wastewater and stormwater rates for 2024-2029.   

For 2024 the rates will be as follows:  
Wastewater Rate $10.35/1000 gallons       
Stormwater Rate $13.39/ERU
Water Utility - NO RATE CHANGE AT THIS TIME - 12/23


At the same meeting on November 27, 2023, city council approved Resolution 2023-146 to authorize the application to the Wisconsin Public Service Commission for a water utility rate Increase.   Until that application is approved by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission there is no rate adjustment to the Water Utility.
