WATER RATES

Ever wonder how the cost of water is determined? There are a couple of factors that must be considered - both the cost to buy the water from the cities of Sandusky, Huron and Vermilion, and distribute it to Erie County water customers. Water rates generate revenue to pay for the cost of purchasing water from Sandusky, Huron, and Vermilion, employee wages and benefits, operation and maintenance expenses, capital improvements, equipment purchases, debt service payments, etc.
