 January 1, 2014 - Rate Restructure for Sewer and Water:
 
 

Water rates for metered service shall be as follows:
 
For the first    5,000 gallons per quarter...........$7.65 per thousand $   38.25
For the next  20,000 gallons per quarter..........$6.85 per thousand  $ 137.00
For the next  25,000 gallons per quarter..........$6.47 per thousand  

Bulk rate (customers under contract for a minimum of 500,000 gallons
per day)........................................................$3.27 per thousand
Metering charge per quarter .............................$2.00

The minimum charge for metered service shall be $40.25 per quarter and shall include the first 5,000 gallons consumed per quarter. (Minimum charge $38.25 plus $2.00 metering charge.)


Sewer rates for metered service shall be as follows:
 
For the first     5,000 gallons per quarter.............$5.25 per thousand $  26.25    
For all over     5,000 gallons per quarter..............$4.73 per thousand

The minimum charge for metered service shall be $26.25 per quarter and shall
include the first 5,000 gallons discharged per quarter.
 
The rates for multiple units (which are not separately metered and billed) shall be $26.25 per quarter for the first unit and $26.25 per quarter for every other connected unit, and shall include a volume of sanitary sewage equal to 5,000 gallons multiplied by the total number of units so connected (the "combined minimum allowance"). The charges in excess of such combined minimum allowance shall be determined by (1) subtracting the combined minimum allowance from (2) the total volume of water purchased each quarter as measured by the single meter and (3) $4.73 per thousand
for all amounts in excess thereof. 


Question:
My water & sewer bill has changed.  What is the $2.00 per quarter "metering charge" for?

Answer:
 It is to help cover distribution system maintenance & repair costs.

 
Most water systems have some kind of charge to help offset upkeep on water mains and related infrastructure (street valves, hydrants, laterals between mains and curb stops, etc.).  Some parts of the system are over 100 years old (not just Morrisville - lots of areas in N.E. US).  Rather than raise rates for our smallest customers, we actually reduced the water charge for those using less than 5,000 gallons per quarter, and have put in place a uniform metering charge for all users.
 
If you have other questions about your water or sewer service, contact the Morrisville Municipal Authority (MMA) at the Borough offices at (215)295-8181.
