2019 Water Rate Changes

Changes in our water rates will take effect on April 1, 2019.  Long Island’s aquifer, the sole source of all of our drinking water, is our most precious resource, and to help protect it, we’re changing the way we charge for water.

A conservation water rate has been established at $2.340 per thousand gallons for all consumption above 78,540 gallons per quarter for 1-inch meters or smaller. (Your meter size is listed on your bill).

This conservation rate is in line with an initiative from the Department of Environmental Conservation calling on Long Islanders to reduce water consumption.

Also, our standard water consumption rate will increase from $1.950 to $2.028 per thousand gallons and our quarterly basic service charge will increase from $24.27 to $27.91. Please contact our Customer Service team with any questions at (631) 698-9500.
