The following rate changes were approved by the SCWA Board at its March 23, 2023 meeting and will take effect June 1, 2023.
Full Summary of Rate Changes:
SCWA’s quarterly service charge has increased from $30.57 per quarter to $32.07 per quarter. Our standard water consumption rate has increased from $1.661 per centi-cubic-foot (CCF) to $1.742 per CCF. Our conservation water rate has increased from $2.398 per CCF to $2.516 per CCF. Only customers who use more than 120 CCF in a single billing quarter will be charged the conservation water rate, and they will only be charged the conservation rate for usage above and beyond 120 CCF (up to 1-inch meters, see chart below).
SCWA is an independent public-benefit corporation operating under the authority of the Public Authorities Law of the State of New York, meaning we operate without taxing power on a not-for-profit basis. Through this new rate structure and the measures outlined above, we are doing everything possible to both pay for the vital service we provide and look after the needs of our customers.
