Water and Sewer Rates for Fiscal Year 2017

The Northampton City Council has approved the water and sewer rates for FY2017 as follows:


WATER RATE

Customer with 1" water meter or smaller
Tier 1 consumption: 0 - 16 CCF $4.36 per CCF
Tier 2 consumption: >16 CCF $5.82 per CCF

Customers with water meter larger than 1"
All consumption $5.72 per CCF

(CCF = 100 cubic feet = 748 gallons)

SEWER RATE

Non-metered $7.52 per CCF based on 80% of metered water consumption
Metered $7.52 per CCF

In addition to the new tiered volumetric rates, the DPW will implement the following fees:

QUARTERLY FIXED CHARGE

NOTE: Customers who currently qualify for a low-income exemption on Real Estate or the Community Preservation Act (CPA) will receive an exemption on their water and sewer bill equivalent to the fixed charge.
