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 the
Amawalk Consulting Group LLC, 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, 2006.
Specifically, it is proposed that the following rate changes become
effective as of July 1, 2006:
- 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 $617.79 per million gallons (“MG”) to
approximately $700.00 per MG. The precise dollar amount will
be determined by June 13, 2006, and will be announced on or before
the day of the public hearing.
- 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, 2006, has been increased from $2,205.88 to $2,419.79 per
Therefore, in accordance with Section 1045-j(3) of the Public Authorities
Law, a public hearing will be held as follows:
Tuesday, June 13, 2006, 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.

report concerning the cost of supplying water to upstate customers or
