How were the new water rates calculated?

New water rates were calculated based on future costs of treating and distributing water. The City of Emporia is one of few comprehensive treatment systems in Kansas that includes: clarification, filtration, and disinfection. Other water treatment systems in Kansas are fed by well water and only include the disinfection process.
