Water and sewer rates are going up in Norwalk.

City of Norwalk water and sewer bills received in February for January consumption will reflect an increase in rates and usage more than the 1,000-gallon minimum charge will be billed in hundreds of gallons rather than thousands of gallons.

The water rate for usage more than 1,000 gallons within Norwalk city limits will increase from $.60 per hundred gallons to $.72 per hundred gallons and the sewer rate will increase from $.70 per hundred gallons to $.74 per hundred gallons.

Those located outside Norwalk city limits that receive water and sewer services from the city of Norwalk will see an increase for water for usage more than 1,000 gallons from $1.20 per hundred gallons to $1.44 per hundred gallons and the sewer rate will increase from $.98 per hundred gallons to $1.04 per hundred gallons.

The monthly rate for usage for 1,000 gallons or less which is the minimum rate, will increase from $1.60 for water to $3.60 and from $1.95 for sewer to $3.70 for a combined charge of $7.30, for those located within Norwalk city limits.

The minimum rate for those located outside Norwalk city limits that receive water and sewer services from the city of Norwalk will increase from $3.20 to $7.20 for water and from $1.95 to $5.20 for sewer for a combined charge of $12.40.

Storm water rates will increase from $1.30 per ERU (Equivalent Residential Unit) to $1.35 per ERU for bills received in February 2013.

Water and sewer rates are determined annually by a review of increases and decreases in the budget for the water and sewer facilities as well as determining the average consumption over the past three year period.

Storm water fees are determined annually by a review of increases and decreases in the budget for storm water purposes along with a review of the total equivalent residential units in the city.
