Water, Sewer & Garbage Rates

The City of Coppell currently utilizes a seasonal water rate structure. Beginning June 1, 2021, the City will switch to an increasing "block" rate structure for residential and irrigation meter accounts to encourage conservation. An increasing block (or tier) rate structure establishes rates that increase with water usage. Experts predict that as the population continues to grow, the demand for and availability of water will begin to stress public water supplies and systems. Under this rate structure, high-usage customers will pay an increased rate for the water they use in order to encourage more mindful consumption. The base rate for water accounts is determined by meter size. Specific base and volume rates are listed below.

The amount shown for the water portion of your bill is calculated using a base rate (a set amount charged to every account each month) and a volume rate which changes based on how much water you use. The rate for the first 15,000 gallons used under the structure effective June 1, 2021 is $3.05 per 1,000 gallons, Any additional usage over 15,000 gallons will be billed at the higher rate.

Effective June 1, 2021, the monthly charges for irrigation meter usage will be determined by the base rate (based on meter size) and upon two usage blocks.

Please note, irrigation meters are different from a normal residential meter. There are only a handful of residential customers in Coppell with irrigation meters, which is a water meter that exclusively measures water used for outdoor watering and irrigation. These meters register outside water use only. Residents that do not have separate irrigation meters are charged at the residential water rate for the appropriate usage block/tier for any water used for irrigation purposes. 

Commercial Water, Sewer & Garbage Rates

Commercial water and sewer rates are based on the size of the meter installed. For specific account information, contact Utility Billing at 972-304-3695, or review a document listing the rates effective June 1, 2021 (PDF). Garbage rates are based on the size of the container. For specific account information, please call Republic Services at 972-304-3555.
