The Moapa Valley Water District has a minimum base rate on all water meters. The residential meter base rate applied to 5/8” meters is $43.68. The base rate applied for a 1” meter is $52.41. The base rate pays for bond and loan payments that the district has incurred to meet current federal mandates to deliver a safe and reliable potable water supply. This debt must be repaid regardless of any water being sold. Unfortunately new federal and state mandates arise yearly in a never ending cycle that the district must prepare and adhere to. In 2007, the District received a low interest loan from the United States Rural Development. Part of the requirements for the loan was that the District could not have a special rate for any group of people.
