DRIPPING SPRINGS, Texas (KXAN) — The cost of wastewater is going up in Dripping Springs.

City customers will see an increase of 10% on their wastewater bill from the Dripping Springs Water Supply Corp on June 1.

This is based on water consumption through December, January and February. Rates are usually updated on April 1, but the city postponed the increase this year.

The last rate increase was in January 2018. The city planned to increase rates in 2020, but postponed it due to COVID-19.

City officials said its rates, “remain competitive in comparison to neighboring communities such
as Bee Cave, Blanco, Kyle, and Buda.”
