The above fees are charged per monthly billing cycles.

Public water systems are required to collect a primacy fee from their customers for remittance to MODNR.  MODNR established the new fee rates by amending rule 10 CCSR 60-16 Drinking Water Fees, consistent with the process outlined in 640.100 RSMo.  The process included holding a series of stakeholder meetings to reach a consensus proposal, presenting the consensus proposal to the Safe Drinking Water Commission for approval, and promulgating the proposal through regulation.  The rulemaking process also included a public comment period and a public hearing to give the public a chance to provide input prior to the Commission’s adoption of the Order of Rulemaking.  The final language of the rule will publish in the November 30, 3021, publication of the Code of State Regulations.  You may find additional information on this process on the MODNR’s Fee stakeholder webpage at the link below:
