Safe Drinking Water Fee - Act 605
As of January 1, 2017 Act 605 of the Regular Session of Louisiana Legislature was enacted authorizing an increase in the Drinking Water Fee. The current fee will be increased from $3.20 per connection per year to $12.00 per connection per year. This amount is normally charged once a year, usually on the August bill. The Water District will charge this to its customers at $1.00 per month instead of a one-time fee of $12.00. This fee is mandated by the State of Louisiana Department of Health.
Expect an initial charge of $2.00 on the February bill, this will include January and February fee. Thereafter the amount will be $1.00 per month per connection every month.
