Water & Sewer Rate Increase Effective January 1st in Cheyenne

The City of Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities (BOPU) is reminding Cheyenne water and sewer users that an 8% (water) and 10% (sewer) rate increase goes into effect January 1, 2024. The City’s governing body approved these rate increases during the annual budget session in June 2023.

This increase is necessary for the cost of continued services Cheyenne businesses and residents expect. Revenues from water and sewer rates are invested directly back into the construction, maintenance, and operation of Cheyenne’s water and sewer system. Funding for the water and sewer system comes from water and sewer sales and fees, grants, water and sewer enterprise fund cash, and loans. All day-to-day operating costs and unplanned work, such as water main leaks, are paid solely by rates and fees.

The BOPU takes pride in providing the citizens of Cheyenne with reliable water and sewer system
