MLGW News Release
Memphis City Council approves water rate increase
February 20, 2019
The Memphis City Council approved an increase in water rates Tuesday night. The increase takes effect March 2019 and will be in place through February next year. MLGW customers will see their water bills increase an average of 45 cents per month. 

The measure will raise roughly $2.5 million and help cover a projected 2019 deficit in the utility’s water division. 

The council rejected proposals to raise MLGW rates that would have helped fund a five-year plan to overhaul the utility’s aging infrastructure.  

The MLGW Board of Commissioners met today and ratified the council-approved increase in water rates.

MLGW is the largest three-service public power utility in the nation, serving more than 431,000 customers in Memphis and Shelby County.
