MWA 2019 Rates Reflect the Value of Water/Sewer

MWA customers will experience a modest increase in water and sewer consumption rates, effective Jan. 1, 2019. The 2019 MWA water and sewer rates only include a 10-cent (per 748 gallons of use) increase in consumption charges. Consumption charges also are referred to as volumetric rates, which is a rate that applies to the amount of customer water/sewer use. However, for the third year in a row, the MWA will not increase the base fees for water and sewer services. Beginning in 2019, MWA residential water customers in Macon-Bibb County will pay $2.40 per CCF for consumption from 0 to 3 CCF, and $2.50 per CCF for consumption above 3 CCF. (Note, the MWA uses CCF, or 100 cubic feet, as a measure of one unit of water consumption. One unit, or one CCF, is equal to approximately 748 gallons.) MWA customers who also receive sewer services from the Authority will pay $2.66 per CCF in 2019, for usage between 0 and 3 CCF, and then $2.76 for consumption above 3 CCF. Sewer consumption charges, however, are billed according to only 80% of a customer’s water usage. It is rare for a water/sewer utility to not charge for sewer consumption according to 100% of metered water use.
