Mesquite, TX - September 13, 2017 - A water rate increase for Mesquite residential and commercial customers will become effective October 1, 2017. The higher rates are a direct result of the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) increasing its water rates to fund projects to operate, maintain and expand the regional water system. The City of Mesquite will use the additional revenue received from the rate increase to cover the increased cost of water purchased.
On average, residential and commercial customers will experience a 6 percent increase in their monthly utility bills. The City of Mesquite and other area cities are still challenging the NTMWD’s wholesale water rates and the “take or pay” system.
