Board: Public Hearing on Rate Increase Outside New York City
PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the New York City Water Board
will consider an increase in the rate charged for water supply made available
to customers outside of New York City by the Water and Wastewater System of
the City of New York ( the "System"). The basis for this increase
is contained in a report prepared by Black & Veatch, rate consultant to
the Board, which sets forth the unit cost of water supply for facilities north
of the City for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2002.
Specifically, it is proposed that the following rate changes become effective
as of July 1, 2002:
The regulated rate for water supply provided to users outside the City,
from either the Croton or Catskill/Delaware systems, be increased from $448.83
per million gallons ("MG") to $485.71 per MG.
The rate for water supply provided in excess of the allowance quantities
set forth in Section 24-360 of the Administrative Code of the City of New
York be continued at a level equal to the in-city metered rate which, as
of July 1, 2002, has been increased from $1,804.81 to $1,925.13 per MG.
Therefore, in accordance with Section 1045-j(3) of the Public Authorities
Law, a public hearing will be held as follows:
Thursday, June 13, 2002, at 1:30 P.M., in the 2nd Floor Training Room of
NYCDEP's Bureau of Water Supply Sutton Park Office, located at 465 Columbus
Avenue, Valhalla, New York 10595.
Interested parties who wish to obtain copies of the Rate Consultant's report
concerning the cost of supplying water to upstate customers or who wish to
give comments to the Board should contact Kevin Kunkle, New York City Water
Board, One Lefrak City Plaza, 59-17 Junction Boulevard, 8th Floor, Corona,
