EMC Water has been approved by the Public Service Commission to increase the water rates. This increase is needed to make improvements to our aging water lines and update many areas of our system. The raise will take effect on your July 2015 bill. The increase is $3.00 on the flat fee. This means the basic rate will go from $16.00 to $19.00 for the first 2,000 gallons of water used. The price per 1,000 gallons used after that will increase from $5.00 to $5.50. This increase was recommended by the USDA and approved and recommended by the Public Service commission after an audit.
