Another Expense for Lynchburg Residents
The city has informed us that the purity of drinking water is excellent in Lynchburg, but due to increased costs of chemicals and water facility improvement our bills are going to increase, perhaps until that well we keep our money goes dry. As city council gave us a decrease in the Common Goods tax, they take away with a rate increase on our water usage.
In order to maintain and improve the utilities in Lynchburg both water and sewer rates have been increased effective July 1, 2005.
Current Rate then the New Rate
% of Increase Water volume
charge per unit $ 1.75 to $ 1.82 increase of 4%
charge per unit $ 4.60 to $ 4.78 increase of 4%
Sewer only per month $ 35.89 to $ 37.15 increase of 3.5%
