Tucson Water Utility Fund

The City of Tucson’s water utility, Tucson Water, is committed to providing high quality water service to the community. As an enterprise fund, the Tucson Water Utility Fund was established to set fees or charges to recover the cost of providing water services, including related capital costs.

The Tucson Water revenues reported within this fund include potable water sales, reclaimed water sales, Central Arizona Project (CAP) surcharge, water conservation fees, connection fees, and other miscellaneous operating revenues. Non-operating revenues within this fund interest earnings, reimbursement from the Tucson Airport Authority Remediation Project, equity fees, and miscellaneous state and federal grants.

Mayor and Council approved a rate differential for Tucson Water customers living within un-incorporated Pima County that took effect starting December 1, 2021. This revenue is dedicated, in equal parts, to infrastructure and maintenance to improve water delivery outside the city limits, climate resiliency, water sustainability, and the expansion of customer assistance programs. The revenue projected to be collected through this differential for Fiscal Year 2022/23 is $9.6 million.

For Fiscal Year 2022/23, the potable water sales are budgeted to be $186.7 million, an increase of $43.7 million from Fiscal Year 2021/22 budget, primarily the result of higher anticipated revenues in Fiscal Tear 2022/23 due to differential rate revenue.
