Understanding Your Water Bill
Tyler Water Utilities (TWU) operates as an Enterprise Fund. This means that TWU receives no tax dollars and all costs to operate and maintain the water treatment and distribution system and the wastewater collection and treatment system are covered by the revenues generated from monthly bills. TWU also collects revenues for the Solid Waste department for solid waste services on the monthly water bill. This reduces the amount of paper that customers receive from the City, and reduces the cost to the City for printing bills. All rates and fees on your bill are approved by the Tyler City Council and any proposed increases are presented and approved in open session of the Council.

Presented below is an explanation of the fees shown on a typical City of Tyler water bill.
