The U.S. Conference of Mayors is conducting a critical affordability survey of the average annual household costs of providing drinking water, sanitary sewers, combined storm and sanitary sewers and flood control systems in our communities. The U.S. Conference of Mayors will be using this information to inform members of Congress on the real costs to cities of operating and maintaining the nation’s critical utility systems. The U.S. Conference of Mayors is currently working with members of Congress on potential legislation, including guidance on the affordability of federal mandates and providing additional funding to communities.

In order to gather this information, cities are being asked to complete a brief survey of the water costs in your community. This survey can be accessed here:

Alternatively, a hard copy of the survey (attached) can be completed and emailed to A sample completed survey and sample results are attached. To see if your city has already completed the survey visit the SGVCOG website.
