[ARCHIVED] No Increase in Rates for Snoqualmie Water Utility Customers

The Snoqualmie City Council recently approved the 2021-2026 Utilities Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), which determines capital projects and programs for a six-year period. To complete the projects and programs, water utility rates generally increase each year for Snoqualmie utility customers. 

This year, rates will not increase due to the coronavirus pandemic and its economic impact on individuals and families. The City Administration did not propose a utility rate increase, nor did the City Council vote to increase rates in 2021. 

There will be gradual increases beginning in 2022 through 2026. Annual rate increases of 3.07%, based on a monthly utility bill for a typical single-family residence, are needed to keep water, sewer, and stormwater utilities operating reliably for customers. In addition, the City needs to consistently invest in the repair, replacement, preservation, and improvement of utility system infrastructure. 

Based on a comprehensive utility rate study in 2020, Snoqualmie’s average residential monthly bills are lower compared to other Snoqualmie Valley cities.

Current rates and an FAQ are posted on the city website at

Low-income residential customers may be eligible for reduced utility rates. More information and the application are available at Questions may be directed to or 425-766-3700, Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. – Noon.
