Notice of Water Rate Changes and Water Supply Emergency

At their October 12th, 2021 regular meeting, the Board of Directors of the Bellyache Ridge Metropolitan District adopted revised Rules and Regulations, which include changes to the regular water rates as well as a new water supply emergency rate structure.

Acting on the advice of our professional water system engineers, the Board also adopted a resolution declaring a Water Supply Emergency within the Bellyache Ridge Metropolitan District effective October 13, 2021.

The new water rates can be found in Appendix B on page 24 of the Bellyache Ridge Metropolitan District Rules and Regulations Rev. 6.3.

Below is a copy of the rate table from Appendix B that is effective beginning October 16, 2021.

Under our tiered billing structure, the cost of water increases as monthly usage increases.  The tiered structure is not changing, but going forward, the tiered structure for pricing changes is tightened with the result being that higher usage costs begin sooner as shown in the table. 

For the vast majority of households in Bellyache Ridge Subdivision where monthly water usage is 4,000 gallons or less, the increase in cost for water will be 2%. However, households with high monthly water usage will experience significantly higher water bills.  We encourage everyone to review their water usage and implement new water conservation practices.

We are currently meeting the water needs of our community and our two water tanks are full.  But the water levels in our wells are at historically low levels for this time of year.  The aquifer is replenished by spring run-off, so we expect well levels to drop further during the winter months.  Our pumps are working and have adequate capacity to pump the available water, but the constraint for pumping water is the time needed for the aquifer to refill our well casings.  The amount of time needed to do so is expected to increase when water levels drop further.  Clearly our collective focus on water conservation is very important at this time.
