Windsor’s new tiered water rate system goes into effect on January 15


From the Windsor Beacon:

Water rates are changing for Windsor residential customers effective Jan. 15. The rate restructuring was approved Oct. 8 by the town board and is a result of higher costs being imposed by suppliers on the town of Windsor. The town is moving to a three-tiered system, with a 3.5 percent increase in fees for residential users without a dual water system.

The town’s current water system for single-system residential users features a base fee of $14.81 a month, with a $3.30 charge per 1,000 gallons a month until the users reach the first-tier threshold of 15,700 gallons a month. The second tier’s charge is $4.93 a month per 1,000 gallons.

The new tier rate structure would increase the first-tier usage, raising it to 16,000 gallons a month before the second tier would begin. The new tier, at 2011 prices, would begin at 22,501 gallons a month at a cost of $7.35 per 1,000 gallons.

The new rates will be shown on the bill received by residents in February.
