Utility Billing - Water/Sewer
On October 25, 2022 City Council unanimously voted to adjust the charges and fees related to utility services provided by the City and County of Broomfield. The ordinance change impacts the water, sewer and reuse charges, in addition to license fees associated with new development for the utilities. The new rates will take effect January 1, 2023.
The finance department will be working with the Communications department to provide more comprehensive information for customers to learn more about the potential impacts. In the meantime, please review the FAQ and contact a member of the Utility Billing team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Tips for Avoiding Scams
- Do not respond to calls or texts from unknown numbers, or any others that appear suspicious.
- Never share your personal or financial information via email, text messages, or over the phone.
- Be cautious if you're being pressured to share any information or make a payment immediately.
- Scammers often spoof phone numbers to trick you into answering or responding.
- Do not click any links in a text message. If a friend sends you a text with a suspicious link that seems out of character, call them to make sure they weren't hacked.
- Always check a suspicious website by calling or looking at its actual website before clicking on the link.
If you think you've been a victim of a scam, contact law enforcement immediately and file a complaint online with the Federal Trade Commission.
*Please be advised that the water service typically remains active during transitions unless informed otherwise, so the Final Reading Request serves as written notice to change the billing/account information from one party to another.
