Water, Sewer & Storm Water Rate Board

What we do

The Philadelphia Water, Sewer, and Storm Water Rate Board is an independent body. City Council established the Board to set rates and charges for water and sewer service.

Through a process of board meetings and hearings, the board considers testimony and other evidence submitted by City officials and members of the public to arrive at fair and reasonable rates to provide adequate funding for the operation of the Philadelphia Water Department.
