The Lynnfield Water District has experienced significant cost increases from its water supplier, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority. At a public hearing on September 14, 2020, the Board of Commissioners voted to approve new water rates, constituting an increase of approximately 3% in water rates for the base rate and the Step 1, and a 6% increase in the Step 2 rate.
The new rates are as follows:
|Rate||Residential Customer (semi-annual)||Commercial Customer (quarterly)|
|Base Rate||0 to 2,000 cu. ft. -- $74.00 Minimum||0 to 1,000 cu. ft. -- $37.00 Minimum|
|Step Rate 1||2,001 to 10,000 cu. ft. -- $3.50/100 cu. ft.||1,001 to 5,000 cu. ft. -- $3.50/100 cu. ft.|
|Step Rate 2||10,001 cu. ft. & over -- $3.91/100 cu. ft.||5,001 cu. ft. & over -- $3.91/100 cu. ft.|
Portable Meter Water Rate: $5.00/100 cubic feet
These rates will take effect January 2021. Commercial customers will see the increase in their July, 2021 bill, while residential customers will see the increase in their April, 2021 bill. Please contact the District for further information at (781) 598-4223.
