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, 2016.
Specifically, it is proposed that the following rate changes become effective as of July 1, 2016:

- 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 will be increased by a percentage not to exceed 2.1% to a rate not to exceed $5,200.53 per million gallons.
Therefore, in accordance with Section 1045-j(3) of the Public Authorities Law, a public hearing will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 in the 2nd Floor Training Room of the New York City Department of Environmental Protection’s Bureau of Water Supply Sutton Park Office, located at 465 Columbus Avenue, Valhalla, New York 10595.
