Why the increase? A general increase in water and wastewater treatment costs from Dallas Water Utilities and the Trinity River Authority; the cost to provide water and wastewater services exceed revenues; aging infrastructure in need of critical repairs.

The City of Duncanville will begin offering discounts for residents 65 and older, with proof of age, beginning October 1, 2022.
