Why are city water rates increasing in 2018?

To generate sufficient funds for the water system, Fridley adopted new rates for 2018. The increased revenue will go toward:


• Repairing and replacement of the City’s aging infrastructure, including water mains that are over 50 years old which includes:
• Replacement of a 7,000 foot segment of 20” transmission water main.
• Updating and rehabilitating wells
• Reconstruction of the water distribution system
