Water and sewer rates in the City of Bend could be increasing a lot in the next five years. The City may have to spend $200-million for several projects. Even with all the needed improvements, City of Bend Public Works Director Paul Rehault says the City still compares favorably with other cities around the State: “We are about in the middle range. And the anticipation is when you look at us and compare us to other communities in Oregon. We are probably going to stay in the middle as well. Not only for capital projects but also for maintenance projects as well for water and wastewater utilities.” Rehault says the City is only committed to two more years of double digit increases for sewer and single digits for water rates. But as City Council makes decisions about future upgrades, those rates are likely to continue to climb.
