Why does the Village raise the water rates?

The Village needs to raise water rates periodically to account for regular increases in costs, such as rate increases from the DuPage Water Commission, whom provides the water supply from the City of Chicago. It is important to remember that no taxes are used to operate the water system; all water fund revenue is derived from user charges.
