The following notice will be mailed to the three associations that purchase bulk water from the Water Authority.
Effective November 16, 2013 the bulk rate for all customers will increase 5.8% or $0.36 per 1,000 gallons. The rate adjustment will appear on the billing for the quarter ending February 15, 2014. The current rate of $6.22 per 1,000 gallons will increase to $6.58 per 1,000 gallons. The rate adjustment is necessary because of a rate increase passed onto us by Erie Water Works of $0.24 per 1,000 gallons and by Millcreek Water Authority of $0.12 per 1,000 gallons for tank maintenance.
The Water Authority will continue to operate with fiscal responsibility on behalf of the water customers in Fairview Township.
