Water Rates

The Livermore Municipal Water utility serves water to more than 28,800 Livermore residents. The balance of residents are served by the California Water Service Company, also known as Cal Water. California Water Service Company customers may click the link here to visit the Cal Water website.

The total cost of water per 100 cubic feet for Livermore Municipal Water customers includes the cost of purchasing water from the Zone 7 Water Agency noted as the "Wholesale Water Cost Per 100 Cubic Feet" in the following rate tables plus the "City Distribution Cost Per 100 Cubic Feet". One unit is 100 cubic feet of water or 748 gallons.

Each Agency's Water Rate changes are implemented according to their budget cycles and upon notice to customers, as required by law. The Livermore Municipal Water rates may be adjusted in June annually. The cost of purchasing water from Zone 7 Water Agency may be adjusted in January annually.
 
Following up on enactment of Conservation Rates which became effective April 29, 2014, the Livermore City Council has reduced Water Conservation Rates from the Stage 3 to the Stage 1 level, effective December 1, 2014. Conservation measures remain in place.

In addition, the City’s water utility purchases all of its supply at a unit cost set by the water wholesaler. This cost, displayed as a separate line item on water bills, will increase as of January 1, 2015.
