Tucson Water Utility Fund

Tuscon Water Utility Fund is committed to providing high quality water service to the general public. 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 fees reported within this fund include potable water sales, Central Arizona Project (CAP) surcharge, water conservations fees, reclaimed water sales, connection fees, and other miscellaneous operating revenues. Non-operating revenues within this fund include 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. This differential was approved on the July 8,2021 Mayor and Council meeting and is not scheduled to take effect until December 1, 2021. The revenue projected to be collected through this differential was not included as part of Tucson Water’s Fiscal Year 2021/22 adopted budget.

For fiscal Year 2021/22, the potable water sales are projected to be $182.4 million, a decrease of $15.9 million from Fiscal Year 2020/21 estimated, primarily the result of higher revenues in Fiscal Year 2020/21. This was caused by a weak monsoon and warmer weather that led to an overall consumption surge.
