New Water/Sewer Rates Effective July 1, 2020
New water and sewer rates were adopted in 2019 and originally planned to go into effect on May 1. Because of the financial impact of COVID-19, the PWC Board delayed implementing the new rates, and they will now apply to services billed beginning in July. Rates fund the essential replacement and reconditioning of aging water and sewer mains, as well as continued improvements to our treatment plants. This work is critical to maintaining reliable and safe water services for all PWC customers. PWC has over 2,400 miles of mains. Our water and wastewater plants each treat over eight billion gallons of water a year. We are proud to meet – or exceed – 100% of state and national water standards, and funding from the rate increase will support these continuing efforts.
