Providing more sustainable and equitable outcomes for the Lafayette community
Maintaining reliable water services for Lafayette residents is a top priority, but unpredictable supply and demand due to climate change requires investments in storage, maintenance, and other capital projects. The City is committed to protecting affordability of residents’ indoor water use and ensuring that growth pays its own way
Investments to secure future water
The City of Lafayette is a partner in several large regional water projects that will help increase resiliency and diversify the water supply available for treatment and distribution to its community members.
Monthly bills include a fixed service charge that remains the same each month, plus a tiered charge that is calculated based on the amount of water used. As more water is used, customers may move into a more expensive tier based on that usage. Typical customers see higher bill amounts during summer irrigation months.

Go dormant and save! Turning off automated irrigation systems by early September will save money on your water bills, help the City and region conserve millions of gallons of water, and won’t compromise the longevity of lawns.
