Rates

American Fork City uses a water meter system with a base rate and tiers that increase the rate depending on usage  The City does a quarterly culinary water meter read and an annual sewer read, both of which are reflected in the next month's bill. So while we don't change our rates, if you used more you would pay more. Water meter reads are done in February, May, August and November. Sewer meter reads are done in February.

City Council approved a water rate realignment that adjusted rates depending on the user and usage. These adjustments went into effect July 1, 2018 and are revenue neutral, meaning the city is not collecting any additional revenue with these changes. The purpose of the adjustments is to better align what people pay based on their usage. As part of the analysis the city looked at commercial, single-, and multi-family residential units. Users in the city who use less water will likely see their water rates reduce overall, while those who use more water may see an increase in rates.
