#NewtownPA Sewer Authority Manager Warren Gormley Explains Rate Increase

At the January 11, 2023, Newtown Board of Supervisors (BOS) meeting, Bucks County Joint Municipal Authority (NBCJMA, aka Authority) Manager Mr. Warren Gormley explained why the Authority is raising the rates it charges Newtown Township and Borough customers.

Mr. Gormley said that the Authority is raising rates for residential customers by 20% from $68 per quarter for 10,000 gallons usage to $82 per quarter. Excess over 10,000 gallons is now $12.00 per 1,000 gallons per unit versus $10 previously. It is also increasing the rates for Commercial, Industrial, Schools, Public and all other customers.

In short, Mr. Gormley cited the 16.6% increase that Bucks County Water & Sewer Authority (BCWSA) charges NBCJMA for transmitting sewage to Philadelphia. Previously, Mr. Gormley appeared before the NT BOS to advocate that BCWSA reject its sale to Aqua PA - a private company - because rates for Newtown residents would "increase dramatically".
