Water Rates – (Cost of Producing Water keeps going UP)
Saegertown has the lowest water rates in the region. However costs have continued to rise:
-DEP has MANDATED an increase in the amount of chlorine added to our water,
-DEP has MANDATED additional water testing (cost of over $9,000 per year)
-Increased cost of utilities
Council is forced to raise the water rates this year to keep up with these new added expenses.
See the following comparison of how your new rates will compare with neighboring communities…..
You will still HAVE THE LOWEST WATER RATES AROUND!!!
