2017 Rates

Gallatin Public Utilities strives to provide high quality water, sewer, and natural gas services at the lowest possible cost to our customers and ratepayers.

Water Rates Pay for


  • Protecting the safety and security of the water supply system
  • Operating two state-of-the-art water treatment facilities
  • Daily testing to maintain drinking water quality
  • Covering open water storage reservoirs in Seattle
  • Maintaining and repairing 1,800 miles of pipeline, 20,000 valves, 18,000 fire hydrants, 180,000 water service connections, and dozens of other water facilities
  • Providing services to help customers manage their bills and resolve problems
As a non-profit, community-owned utility, we pass changes in fuel costs-up or down-directly onto our customers. The cost adjustment rate structure establishes rates sufficient to recover fuel related costs through just and reasonable pricing that is not unduly discriminatory. Gallatin Public Utilities' staff initiates Gas Cost Adjustments in a timely manner to respond to fluctuations in market price and consumption.

Interruptible Rates

Rates for Preferred Interruptible (GXO), Interruptible (GIO), Interrutible Market Pool (GMO), and Interruptible Transportation (GTO) are subject to the terms and conditions outlined in their natural gas service contracts. These customers must meet the established criteria to be eligible for service under the above referenced rates. Contract terms conditions are available on request from the Superintendent of Public Utilities.

For the Interruptible Rate (GIO) and the Interruptible Market Pool Rate (GMO) the charges are based on the sum of Gallatin's monthly commodity weighted average unit cost of gas including pipeline commodity and transportation, plus the above.
