2018 Water Rates

BASE CHARGES EACH MONTH ARE:
MONTHLY SERVICE CHARGE OF $61.00
CAPITAL FEE CHARGE OF $10.00
TOTAL BASE CHARGE PER MONTH $71.00

The Pine Brook Water District did change the water rates for 2018. These rates are in effect for your December usage and so will be reflected on the January billing. The cost per thousand gallons of usage remained the same BUT the monthly service charge was increased from $50.00 a month to $61.00 a month.

Over the last two years the District has had to pull $100,000 out of reserves to cover shortfalls in the operational part of the budget. Obviously this is not sustainable.

The Board will be holding public meetings starting in early 2018 to discuss a potential major restructuring of the water rate schedules. Please watch for notices from the District.


The Pine Brook Water District started charging a “capital fee” of $10.00 each month to every bill back in January of 2014. . Capital fees are used to pay for large maintenance needs, such as tank painting, pump replacements. This raises $50,000 per year and enables us to systematically plan and execute the capital projects which are required to maintain the facilities on an ongoing basis.

The total monthly base fee, which is the service fee and capital fee, is $71.00.

Bills are sent out around the first of each month. If you do not receive a bill you should call the water district office.

Bills that are not paid by the 25th of each month will be considered delinquent and assessed a late charge of 10% for the charges for that month (note – the 10% charge is not on the total balance due but only on the charges for that month).

Two months of non-payment triggers a turn off notice to be issued with a fee of $25.00 added to your bill. Failure to pay after the issuance of a turn off notice will be cause for your water service to be discontinued. In the event the District turns off your water it will only be turned back on after the account has been paid in full including a reconnection fee of $50.00.

The District will not accept two party checks. Any returned checks will be charged a $15.00 returned check fee.
