WSSC Rate and Fee Increases Approved for Montgomery and Prince Georges Counties
The Montgomery and Prince George’s County Councils have approved usage rate and fee increases for WSSC, effective for July 1, 2016. The budget plan would increase combined water and sewer usage rates by three percent. Additionally, the plan will double the Infrastructure Investment Fee that was first introduced in July 2015. The Infrastructure Investment Fee varies in price based on the size of a water meter and is added to the usage charge for water and sewer on each bill. The fee is a funding source for WSSC’s water and sewer pipe reconstruction program, and was scheduled to be phased-in over the current and next year’s budgets.
