Board Public Hearing on Rate Increase Outside New York City
PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the New York City Water
Board is considering an increase in the rate charged for water supply
made available to customers outside of New York City by the Water
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 year beginning
July 1, 2000.
It is proposed that the following rate increase will become effective
as of July 1, 2000. Specifically, it is proposed that:
- The regulated rate for water supply provided to users outside
the City from either the Croton or Catskill/Delaware systems will
be increased from $383.78 per million gallons ("MG") to
approximately $414.42 per MG, effective July 1, 2000.
- 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 shall be continued at a level equal to the
in-city metered rate of $1,751.34 per MG as of July 1, 2000.
Therefore, in accordance with Section 1045-j(3) of the Public Authorities
Law, a public hearing concerning the proposed rate increases will
be held as follows:
Tuesday, June 6, 2000, at 2:00 P.M., in Room 102 of the County
Office Building, located at 148 Martine Avenue, White Plains, NY 10601.
Members of the public 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,

will be limited to five (5) minutes duration.
