[ARCHIVED] Water rate increase approved

In response to a rate increase from West View Water Authority, the bulk supplier of our water, and to fund a Water Meter replacement program, Cranberry water rates will increase in late July. Details will be outlined in bill inserts and the quarterly newsletter.

West View recently announced a 27 percent increase in the price per thousand gallons, set to take place July 1, to finance the construction of a new $105 million Ohio River water treatment plant in Beaver County, along with pipelines and pumping stations to deliver that water to Cranberry and other nearby communities.

Cranberry’s price increase begins for meter readings taken after July 20. A $2 monthly base rate increase, for residential customers, will take effect on that date to help to finance the replacement of aging home water meters with real-time electronic ones over a three year period. The combined increases will add an average of $8.85 to residential customers’ monthly bills.
