January 2019 Rate Increase

Breezy Hill Water & Sewer Co., Inc. will implement a rate increase effective January 1, 2019. Customers will see the increase on their February 1st bill. The average customer using 7,500 gallons of water each month will see the water bill rise to $33.88. This is slightly over a dollar a day for service. Compare that with your cablevision or cell phone bills. The sewer bill will rise to $25.98.

Rate increases are never wanted-our last was in 2012. Breezy Hill is currently expanding its water plant to 8 million gallons a day to meet the ever-increasing needs. We are continuing to meet the new regulations that are required. We currently pay Aiken County Public Service Authority $1.69 to treat sewage from Breezy Hill. We charge you $1.65 under current rates, obviously an unsustainable model.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
