Water and Sewer Rates

Updated Utility Rates Effective January 7, 2023

Dear Gretna Utility Customer,

The February 2023 bills will reflect updated water and sewer utility rates adjusted per City Ordinance to follow the national Consumer Price Index (CPI) for these services. The minimum monthly bill for residential customers will show an increase of $0.95, reflecting a CPI increase of 3.5%.

This will be the first rate increase in 3 years as the city suspended any increases due to the financial hardships caused by the COVID pandemic.

As utility costs throughout the industry continue to rise, Gretna is committed to managing these costs and increasing efficiency while upgrading aging infrastructure.
