Effective with the January 2017 billing statement, due February 15th, SPU customers will see an increase in their Water Usage Charge. Increases range from $0.15/1,000 gallons used to $0.25/1,000 gallons used, depending on service type.
Example: A family of four utilizing an average of 2,000 gallons/person/month will see an incremental impact of $1.80 per month.
In keeping with increased expenses projected with the maintenance and expansion of our infrastructure in 2017, the Water Reconstruction Fund Charge will increase by $0.07/1,000 gallons.
In addition to water charge changes, SPU reduced the Relocation Underground Charge for Electric from $0.001 to $0.00025 per kWh. This is lower than the 2014 rate.
