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 from either the Croton or Catskill/Delaware
systems of the Water Supply 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, 2004.
Specifically, it is proposed that the following rate changes become effective
as of July 1, 2004:
The regulated rate for water supply provided to users outside the
City that is within the allowance quantities set forth in Section
24-360 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York, will be
increased from $542.36 per million gallons (“MG”) to an
amount not to exceed $600.00 per MG.
The rate for water supply provided to users outside the City that
is in excess of the allowance quantities set forth in Section 24-360
of the Administrative Code of the City of New York will be continued
at a level equal to the in-city metered rate which, as of July 1,
2004, has been increased from $2,032.09 to $2,139.04 per MG.
Therefore, in accordance with Section 1045-j(3) of the Public Authorities
Law, a public hearing will be held as follows:
Monday, June 14, 2004, at 2:00 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,
