North Richland Hills water and sewer rates will be adjusted on October 1, 2021. The adjustment includes a $0.33 rate increase for water purchases and a $0.19 cent rate increase for sewer treatment costs from the City of Fort Worth and the Trinity River Authority. The impact to the average residential water customer using 10,000 gallons per month will be $4.16 per month. This is an average and will vary based on your actual usage. A resident that uses the minimum volume (2,000 gallons or less) of water per month will not see a change in the amount they pay for water; however, the sewer rate adjustment will be applied.
The rate increases are due to increasing costs for treating and providing water as well as wastewater treatment services. Because the City of North Richland Hills purchases drinking water and wastewater treatment services from the City of Fort Worth and the Trinity River Authority, their rate increases are passed on to NRH water customers. The City of NRH does not mark up or make a profit off of the pass through rate increases. Questions about your water bill may be directed to the Water Department at 817-427-6200.
