On February 20, 2015, DC Water published proposed increases to the water and sewer rates for Fiscal Year 2016. The proposed rates, if adopted by the DC Water Board of Directors, will be effective October 1, 2015. The proposed FY 16 rates include different water rates for each customer class. DC Water is also proposing two new fees - a Water System Replacement Fee and Development Impact Fee. Please see the chart below for a comparison of the current rates with the increases proposed by DC Water, including proposed changes to the water rates for multifamily and non-residential customers.
Single Register – Meter that has only one device that displays the consumption volume.
Multiple Register – Meter that has two or more devices that can display the consumption volume at different flow rates (high or low) or different uses, including, but not limited to, Demand Flow and Fire Flow.
The stormwater fee is collected by DC Water for the DC Department of the Environment (DDOE). Increases to the stormwater fee will depend on any adjustments to the District's MS-4 permit mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. AOBA will update the membership regarding any future increases.
*DDOE did not propose an increase to the stormwater fee for Fiscal Year 2016.*
