All water tap fees are calculated by the Public Works Administration Department following Water Ordinance 19-07.
In order to comply with State of Colorado mandates and to reduce water waste, the Town of Frisco uses a metered water billing system. Meters are installed in all Frisco properties and are required in any new construction.
Frisco Town Council approved a water rate and tap fee increase in June 2019, after two years without any increases. The proposed increases were approved in order to properly budget and plan for anticipated capital improvements, keep up with rising operating expenses and encourage conservation. Currently, Frisco has the second lowest tap fees in Summit County and the lowest water rates. Concurrently, Frisco Town Council also approved a generous new water efficiency and conservation program to benefit our customers who want to improve their own personal water infrastructure.
The following water rates will increase by 5% annually on October 1st of each year through October 1, 2024.
The base rate of $49.61 per EQR will be billed quarterly in arrears. EQR stands for “Residential Equivalent” and represents one water tap assigned to a single family dwelling inside the Town limits. Water use will be billed as an additional amount added to the $49.61 base rate according to the follow calculation guide.
Water billing is handled by the Town’s Finance Department.
The Town of Frisco has partnered with Xpress Bill Pay where you can not only pay your current water bill, but also see your water bill history and use that information to calculate the impact of the 5% rate increase in the 4th quarter.
