[ARCHIVED] Sewer rate increase in the pipeline

Rates for the Township’s sanitary sewer service are about to
go up in response to increasing costs.  At its March 29 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors agreed toconsider action on a new rate schedule at its April 5 meeting.  Charges for the service are based on each customer’s
metered water use plus a monthly minimum charge that varies with the watermeter’s size.  For homes served by
5/8-inch supply lines – the most frequent for residential use – that charge is currently$7.00 plus consumption fees of $8.48 per 1,000 gallons.  The typical home uses 5,000 gallons of water
a month.  The new rate, which representsa 50¢ per 1,000-gallon increase as well as a $2 a month increase in the base
rate, would go into effect with the June billing cycle.  The combined monthly impact for an averagehome would be $4.50.
