Fulton Board Reduces Water & Sewer Rates
Fulton County water and sewer customers will soon see lower bills, thanks to action taken by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners at their December 19, 2012 meeting.
The County’s 2013 water & sewer budget approved by the board included a 4 percent rate reduction for retail water and sewer customers. As a result, Fulton County water and sewer customers will enjoy the lowest water and sewer rates in metro Atlanta, effective February 1, 2013.
The current water rate of $3.02 per 1,000 gallons will be decreased to $2.90 per 1,000 gallons and the current sewer rate of $5.74 per 1,000 gallons will be decreased to $5.51 per 1,000 gallons
For a customer using approximately 6,000 gallons per month, the saving for water and sewer will be approximately $25 per year. If water consumption is 12,000 gallons per month, the saving for water and sewer will be approximately $50 per year.
Fulton County provides water and sewer services in most of Fulton County north of the Chattahoochee River. The County also provides sewer services in South Fulton and City of Sandy Springs..
During the December 19 meeting, the Fulton County Board of Commissioners approved the final 2013 budgets for the Fulton County Water and Sewer Revenue Fund and the Water & Sewer Renewal and Extension Fund.
