2017 Water & Sewer Retail Survey

There is no better way to ring in the New Year than by reviewing the water and sewer rates from this year. The 2017 Advisory Board Water and Sewer Retail Rate Survey is here! The 2017 document highlights a 2.2% increase from the prior year for the average annual cost of water and sewer services for a household in the MWRA service area at the industry standard usage of 120 HCF (90,000 gallons); the average cost in 2017 being $1,558.47.

You’ll notice some new additions to the document this year. The 2017 survey features an additional 60 pages dedicated to the long-term rate trends of the MWRA communities. In addition to the detailed 2017 information regularly found in the survey, ratepayers can now see how rates have evolved in their communities over the past couple of decades.

The rate survey data is no longer limited to the annual document either. Be sure to also check out the Retail Rate Calculator on the Advisory Board website as well. Here, ratepayers can estimate household water and sewer costs for MWRA communities at any level of water usage.

Be on the lookout for a thumb drive with a copy of this survey in the mail very soon.
