Water Conservation Measures

Conservation Rate Discount

The Conservation Rate Discount provides a 15 percent discount each month for households that are inside the cities of Little Rock and North Little Rock, that have a single meter (not applicable to a sprinkler meter), and that use either 100, 200, or 300 cubic feet (cu.ft) of water in the billing  month. This discount is intended to benefit domestic customers on limited incomes and serve as an incentive for wise water use by all customers. If you qualify for the discount in a given month, your billing statement will reflect the amount of the discount and will include the following message:

“Congratulations, you received a 15% WATER discount for being a water-wise customer!”

Demand Management Charge

Rates for inside-city and outside-city domestic and sprinkler customers have a 30 percent higher inclining block reflecting the Demand Management Charge on monthly usage in excess of 33 cu.ft (approximately 25,000 gallons) per meter.  See monthly usage charge table above. When a customer’s usage exceeds 33 cu.ft the monthly billing statement will include the following message:

“Your monthly usage exceeds 33 cu.ft. For ways to save money and water, visit our web site at www.carkw.com”

Watershed Protection Fee

The fee will go toward funding our Watershed Management Program, which includes land purchases, water quality monitoring, and other measures to protect our drinking water supply lakes from potential sources of pollution. The monthly fee will be 45 cents for households with a 5/8 inch-diameter meter. The Watershed Protection Fee by meter size will be, as follows:
