Gladstone Water Bills Skyrocketing.

 Gladstone residents have been complaining of raising water costs. Linda Johnson reported a $15 increase over last month while many other said theirs bills have almost doubled over the last two years as Gladstone has increased its sewage and waste water charge. Linda noted, "I’m a Gladstone resident, a retired, single woman living alone, I don’t wash my car at home & I haven’t watered any landscaping recently! Why in the world did my water bill go up over $15.00 this month? "

Teresa Stanton in Carriage Hills had this to say. "Drives me nuts too. A lot of time it’s an increase in the sewer instead of water. We have no leaks. No explanation if you call. Meters are fine. We live in Gladstone too. How many gallons was your bill? For us it was 3,000. But again the highest part was the sewer"

Gladstone resident Vaneissa Bashears says her bill is between $115 and $145 a month . "Sad to say but I’m happy with that because it was $225 regularly before we bought a new washer and dryer. That’s the only difference we are a household of seven but I’ve always thought it was high compared to KC."

Unlike KCMO, Gladstone does not get its water from the Missouri River instead it has deep wells. The water is supposed to be much cleaner and require fewer chemicals to purify. Gladstone is replacing sewers on an improvement schedule. The cost of the improvements are being passed on Gladstone residents. But this lil happy rock asks "Is it really worth it?"


  1. Your increase is because of KCMO sewer increases from 6to 8 percent per year

  2. I agree with LWT as the recent increase was discussed recently at a Gladstone City Council meeting.
