Charlotte County Utilities
CCU's rates reflect the cost of providing safe drinking water and environmentally sound wastewater treatment and effluent disposal services to its customers. These services have become more intensely regulated over the years as concerns over health and protection of the environment have grown. Rates and charges also reflect the cost of water purchased by contract, utilities financing, operation and administration.

The final increase that was to take effect October 1, 2010 was repealed in September, 2010.
