2020 Water Consumption Rates
All municipal utility charges shall be calculated in accordance with the specific rate established by ordinance, resolution, or policy as adopted by the Town Board and applicable to each municipal utility or service provided to a customer.
The Town of Windsor regularly reviews its rates and makes adjustments to reflect the cost of providing safe and reliable water to Windsor Utility customers. In order to ensure that rates charged by Windsor’s Water Utility are fair and equitable, the Town of Windsor conducts regular cost-of-service studies which help identify operational expenses associated with the delivery of services. The town does not profit from utility services. Rate increases for 2020 were approved during a town board meeting held November 18, 2019.

Water Pressure Zones
The Water Pressure Zone Map (PDF) depicts the town's pressure zones and the existing and purposed water lines within the town's Water Service Area. The main function of the Water Pressure Zone Map is to identify the water pressure zones and to integrate the planned water line network with the existing water line network so that it functions efficiently within the town's water service area.
Potable Water Master Plan
The objective of the Potable Water Master Plan (PDF) is to provide the town’s decision makers with the information needed to make sound decisions associated with its water portfolio. The plan was designed to work in conjunction with the town’s other master planning efforts, including the 2002 Water Master Plan, 2006 Comprehensive Plan, and 2008 Water Conservation Plan.
With Resolution No. 2010-25, the Town Board approved and adopted the Potable Water Master Plan (PDF) with the following exceptions:
Water Dedication Calculations
When computing water dedication requirements, the town shall use a 70% quota to determine the number of CBT units required for dedication by land developers.
Surcharge for Distribution System loss
Upon Town Board review in conjunction with the annual budget process and upon a Town Board Resolution confirming that the pace of land development supports such a charge, the town may later resolve to charge land developers a surcharge to offset water distribution system losses. At this time, however, the surcharge will not be implemented.
Shift water dedication policy from 100% CBT dedication to 50% water dedication and 50% cash-in-lieu (CIL)
Beginning in 2010 and concluding in 2015, the town shall require that raw water dedication requirements be met through an equal allocation between CIL and acceptable raw water units, with the following exception: if ownership of the land in question includes ownership of raw water rights exceeding 50% of the town’s requirements, the developer may use such excess raw water rights to satisfy the town’s requirements, and in such situations shall not be required to tender CIL to the extent of such excess.
Determination of cash-in-lieu (CIL) price each year
Beginning in 2010, the town’s director of engineering shall in his sole discretion from time to time establish the CIL price for town water dedication requirements, based upon a reliable source or sources for the actual market value of water shares in the region. The director of engineering shall publish the CIL price so determined within five (5) days of such a modification.
