Water Rates

The Board of Water Commissioners have set the FY2019 water rates.   The new rate schedule is available online and includes an 26.1% increase in the water rate.  The rates are based on the budget approved at Town Meeting in May 2018 and the water use forecast for FY2019.

The rate increase is due to increases in the Water Department's reserves which have been increased in anticipation of bond costs for the Water Treatment Plant Project and short-term borrowing for capital projects.

The Board of Water Commissioners have set the FY2018 water rates.   The new rate schedule is available online and includes an 17.3% increase in the water rate.  The rates are based on the budget approved at Town Meeting in May 2017 and the water use forecast for FY2018.

The rate increase is due in large part to the increase in the Water Department's reserves which has been increased in anticipation of bond costs for the Water Treatment Plant Project.

The Board of Water Commissioners have set the FY2017 water rates.   The new rate schedule is available online and includes an 18.7% increase in the water rate.  The rates are based on the budget approved at Town Meeting in May 2016 and the water use forecast for FY2017.

The rate increase is due in large part to the increase in the Water Department's Enterprise Reserve Fund which has been increased in anticipation of bond costs for the Water Treatment Plant Project and Washington Street Water Main Replacement Project.
