On Tuesday, February 22, 2022 the Board of Water Commissioners voted unanimously to approve a 6.4% increase in water rates. The increase is necessary to continue sound fiscal and operational management of the District’s distribution system, maintain sufficient reserve funds, and meet regulatory requirements to mitigate PFAS in our public drinking water supply. New rates take effect upon the February 2022 meter reading and will be reflected on the Q4 (Feb-May) billing statement. A typical residential household will see an overall increase of about $9 per quarter, or $37 per year. An average customer uses 22,500 gallons of water per year. To minimize the impact to customers, help promote water conservation an inclining block rate strategy is used for determining water rates.
All outstanding funds and delinquent accounts are subject to disconnection of service for non-payment. When water service to any premises has been terminated, water service will be restored only after the termination fee together with the outstanding charge(s) have been fully satisfied by payment in full.
Note→ Maintaining the customer copy of your quarterly water statement(s) your most recent 8 successive quarters (2 years) eliminates the need of this report. Simply supply your septic inspector with copies of these invoices as proof of water usage.
