Rio Vista's Utilities Rate Studies: A Transparent Path Forward

The City of Rio Vista is embarking on an essential journey to ensure the provision of utility services (Water, Wastewater and Storm drain fees) meet both present and future needs within our community. This undertaking includes a detailed examination of Infrastructure, Operations, Regulatory, and Environmental changes over both short-term (approximately 5 years) and long-term (20-50-100 years) periods.

As part of the efforts to preserve its friendly, safe, and small-town character, significant steps are being taken to align Rio Vista's utilities with the growth, aspirations, and compliance of our city with current and future environmental laws, all while keeping funding aligned with today's and projected costs within our community.

Diving Deeper into Rio Vista's Utilities

Rio Vista has partnered with NBS, a leader in financial and engineering services, to conduct comprehensive rate studies on:

  • Water: Determining the appropriate charges to support and enhance the water utility for our community.
  • Stormwater: Addressing contemporary challenges in rainwater management and pollution control within our community.
  • Wastewater: Ensuring that sewage management meets both current needs and future demands for our community.

Engagement with CivicMic – A Platform for Open Communication
