Public Water System Service Fees to Increase - Arkansas Department of Health

During the 92nd General Assembly of the Arkansas Legislature, House Bill 1737 was introduced to raise Public Water System Service Fees from $0.30 per meter per month to $0.40 per meter per month. This bill was the result of the Arkansas Department of Health seeking support for the safe drinking water program in order to cope with upcoming challenges and increasing costs to the program. House Bill 1737 was passed by both Houses and signed into law by the Governor. House Bill 1737 became Act 788 on April 8th, 2019.

This fee increase, as charged to the water system by the State of Arkansas, will be reflected in WWA customer’s next billing cycle. If you have any questions or would like more information, please call the WWA office at (479) 267-2111.
