Utility Rates

Utility rate increases are the result of the continued need to replace the City of Edina’s aging water, sewer, and storm sewer infrastructure. The City reviews our comprehensive rate study annually and updates it as necessary to determine the need for replacement. The cost of routine maintenance and service of the Utility system increases each year due to inflation, also contributing to rate increases.
