- 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, 2011, will increase from $3,943.85 to $4,237.97 per MG.
