Clean Drinking Water Fee

The Clean Water Drinking Fee is paid by city water departments, rural water districts and any other organization selling water. Collectively all of these organizations are called ‘public water supply systems.’ The Clean Drinking Water Fee is three cents per 1,000 gallons of water sold. The law specifically forbids the public water supply systems from adding this fee to their customers’ water bill.

The Clean Drinking Water Fee is reported quarterly on the same form as the Water Protection Fee. The return requires two entries - one for the Water Protection Fee and one for the Clean Drinking Water Fee.
