The answer depends on how much you use, but this is not just one rate hike. It is possible we will see a steady increase for the next five years.
The city is holding a public hearing Wednesday at 9 a.m. at City Hall to go over the proposed increases.

Houston is basing its planned increases on a study commissioned back in 2019.
According to the study by Carollo Engineers, if you currently use 6,000 gallons of water a month, you pay $37.22. The cost will rise over the next five years to $56.20.
At the same time, waste water fees could be going up.
Right now, according to the study, customers who use 6,000 gallons of water are paying $45.92 a month.
If the proposals are accepted, that would increase over the next five years to $76.15 a month.
The combined bill, according to the study, would go from about $82 a month to $132 a month over 5 years.
The city has not raised water and sewage fees since 2010. If passed as is, the new rates will impact half a million accounts.
