Water Bills Could Go Down For Some Albemarle Families

Water Bills Could Go Down For Some Albemarle Families

If you get your water from the Albemarle County Service Authority, you might see lower monthly bills. The authority’s directors have approved a 1% decrease in the water rates for single family households. The difference could show up in a customer’s July water bill. The board has also approved a 4% increase in the hookup fees for new projects and developments. Both changes are reflected in the authority’s new budget, which takes effect July 1st.
