The AWWA has updated its publication of Principles of Water Rates, Fees, and Charges (M1). The publication is designed to help utilities recover the cost of producing and delivering safe water, while charging different customer classes equitably, planning for capital improvements, and supporting community's social, economic, political, and environmental concerns. The manual presents all the water rate structures, fees, and charges in common use among water utilities and explains the advantages and disadvantages of each, including how various water rates and charges will affect customers and the utility.
