Rapid City Water Bills May Rise in 2018

The Rapid City Council is considering a five-year utility rate plan which may result in higher water bills for Rapid City residents next year. According to KOTA News, a recent water and water reclamation utility rate study found that although Rapid City water is safe, the cost of maintaining the high quality of the water has become expensive.

The city council will discuss the utility rate plan at its October 16 meeting and may vote on the plan on November 6.
