(James City County) June 10, 2004 - All James City Service Authority (JCSA) water and sewer bills mailed on or after July 1, 2004 will reflect rate changes adopted by the Board of Directors on May 11, 2004.

 

Residential water rates are on an Inverted-Block Rate Structure based on usage. Nonresidential water rates and all sewer rates are a flat fee based on usage.

 

For residential customers, rates for Block 1 ($2.30 per 1,000 gallons for less than 15,000 gallons per quarter) have not changed. However, Block 2 has increased from $2.60 to $2.71 per 1,000 gallons for more than 15,000 gallons but less than 30,000 gallons per quarter and Block 3 has increased from $7.45 to $7.60 per 1,000 gallons for more than 30,000 gallons per quarter.

 

The flat water rate of $2.60 per 1,000 gallons for non-residential customers will increase to $2.70 and for the sewer rate for both residential and nonresidential customers will increase from $2.50 to $2.70 per 1,000 gallons.

The last water and sewer rate increases were in July 2003. The rate increases are necessary to provide required revenue to meet operating expenditures and finance necessary water and sewer system improvements throughout the JCSA service area.

The JCSA encourages water conservation which in turn reduces the costs of service to JCSA customers. Visit www.bewatersmart.org for information on water conservation or contact the JCSA Environmental Education Coordinator at (757) 253-6859.
