Meters and Rates

The type of water supplied to your home, as well as the number of gallons used, determines the rate charged for water service. The water rates are set by the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) and change after a rate case is filed by the Utility with the PUC.

When you initiate potable water service, you will incur a $30 service connection inspection fee. If a connection to the system has not yet been installed, you will incur a $600 connection fee for a standard lot. If the cost to make the connection is less than $600, Lanai Water Company will reimburse the difference. If the cost to make the connection is more than the standard fee, the customer will be responsible for the additional cost.

*User charges are per day averages calculated by dividing the total volume used during the billing cycle divided by the number of days in that billing cycle. For example, a single family customer with one lot who uses 59,400 gallons during a billing cycle of 61 days will pay Tier 1 rates of $5.81 (59,400 gallons/61 days = 973.77 gallons per day).
