Please be advised that residents will see an increase to their Safe Drinking Water Fee beginning May, 2017. During the 2016 Regular Session of the Louisiana Legislature, ACT 605 was enacted authorizing an increase to the Safe Drinking Water fee beginning on January 1, 2017. The Safe Drinking Water fee will increase from $3.20 per connection per year to $12.00 per connection per year.

In an effort to compensate for the new fee change, a $5.00 charge per connection will be added to May 2017 bills. Beginning in June 2017 and each month thereafter a $1.00 charge per connection will be added to bills.

The Louisiana Department of Health stated that this fee has increased to provide funding for additional water testing. The City of Natchitoches appreciates the public’s patience during this process. For more information regarding fee increases please contact The City of Natchitoches Utility Service Center at (318) 357-3844.
