Water Rates

On December 19, 2017, the New York State Court of Appeals reversed a lower court decision that had invalidated the Water Board’s resolution approving a new rate schedule set to take effect on July 1, 2016.

What does this mean for you?

  1. All water and sewer bills issued after July 1, 2016 are valid and must be paid by the listed due date.
  2. Tax Class 1 property owners, (1, 2, 3 family homes, as identified by the New York City Department of Finance) will receive the $183 water rate credit as previously announced. The credit will be posted to eligible accounts on February 1, 2018, and will be viewable on customers’ bills and MY DEP Account after that date.
  3. Effective as of January 26, 2018, water and sewer bills will be calculated in accord with the Water Board’s revised rate schedule.
