HAGERSTOWN - Water and sewer rates, and the sewer hookup fee in Washington County will officially increase in the coming fiscal year.
The Washington County Commissioners unanimously voted Tuesday to accept the proposed rate and fee increases.
Julie Pippel, acting director of the Washington County Department of Water Quality, presented the projected quarterly rate increases for both residential and commercial customers to the board during a public hearing Tuesday.
The board did not receive any public comment on the proposed increase during the hearing.
Under the rate increase, full-service water and sewer customers will see the base rate increase 3 percent, or about $2.80 for sewer, and 4 percent, or about $2.40, for water.
Additional volume will increase 14 cents for every 1,000 gallons of sewer and 30 cents for every 1,000 gallons of water used.
