New Drought Surcharge Fee – Effective February 1, 2024

On December 11, 2023, Alamo Heights City Council passed Ordinance No. 2217 amending Chapter 19 – Water and Sewers, Article III Conservation of Groundwater to adopt a Drought Surcharge Fee. A drought surcharge fee will be assessed when the City declares a Critical Drought Stage (Stages 1 to 5) and the customer’s monthly water consumption exceeds the Consumption Threshold for the account type: Residential, Commercial and Multi-Family, Institutional or Irrigation. The fee is effective February 1, 2024.

The Drought Surcharge Fee amount for that month’s Critical Drought Stage (Stage 1 to Stage 5) would be charged to every 100 cubic feet of water used above the Consumption Threshold amount. For instance, if a Residential customer that used 3,000 cf in a month during Stage 3, then they would be charged $1.25 for the additional 500 cf used over the Residential threshold of 2,500 cf (500cf / 100 X $1.25 fee), or $6.25 for the Drought Surcharge Fee.
