#NewtownPA Sewer Authority Raises Rates by 20%

#NewtownPA Sewer Authority Raises Rates by 20% | Newtown News of Interest |

At the January 10, 2023, Newtown Bucks County Joint Municipal Authority (NBCJMA) Board meeting, Mr. Warren Gormley - Authority Manager - responding to an inquiry from Newtown Supervisor John Mack, said that the Authority is raising rates by 20% from $68 per quarter for 10,000 gallons usage to $82 per quarter. Excess over 10,000 gallons is now $12 per 1,000 gallons per unit versus $10 previously.


Some people  have already received invoices with the rate increase. 


The increase was implemented in anticipation of increased rates that the Bucks County Water and Sewer Authority (BCWSA) charges NBCJMA for  "conveyance fees." These fees are for conveying Newtown’s sanitary sewer waste water to treatment plants in Philadelphia.


Mr. Gormley indicated that he will attend the January 11. 2023, Newtown Supervisors meeting to make a statement about the increase and answer questions.
