Wastewater Rates

As part of the 2019 budget process, the Board of Trustees recently approved a wastewater utility rate increase. These public services are not funded by tax dollars, rather, they are supported by utility rates and fees paid to the corresponding “enterprise fund.”

Each user of the publicly owned wastewater treatment plant is charged a monthly service charge. For town-provided, metered water residential customers, there is a wastewater monthly service (base) charge, plus a volume charge. The consumer’s volume rate is based on the average winter consumption of water usage for the three months of December, January and February, divided by 3 and then multiplied by $9.50 for each 1,000 gallons of water use for such three-month period. Using average winter consumption, the average household is Lyons is billed for 3,000 gallons monthly. 

For Town-provided metered water, for nonresidential customers, there is a wastewater monthly service (base) charge, plus a volume charge. The consumer’s volume rate is billed at $9.25 for every 1,000 gallons used each month.

Unmetered water users pay a flat wastewater service charge.

Wastewater rates will become effective January 1, 2019, with billing beginning on the February 2019 utility bill.

The Town of Lyons offers a low-income wastewater rate. If you meet HUD eligibility guidelines, please inquire at Town Hall.
