PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN thatthe 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

north of the City for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2005.
Specifically, it is proposed that the following rate changes become
effective as of July 1, 2005:
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 $591.21 per million gallons (“MG”)
to $617.19 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, 2005, has been increased from $2,139.04 to
$2,205.88 per MG.
Therefore, in accordance with Section 1045-j(3) of the Public Authorities
