How are water and wastewater (sewer) rates set?
Novi sets water and sewer rates for its residents and businesses. These rates cover the cost that Novi incurs in delivering water and wastewater service in addition to the charges they pay DWSD and OCWRC for services provided. DWSD and OCWRC rates with communities are set through an established process each year. Rate setting is a forward-looking process based on estimated future use and actual past usage from the communities.
