Twenty Per Cent. Reduction to Meter Users

Twenty Per Cent. Reduction to Meter Users

The local water company at Warren, Pa., has issued the following circular to its patrons:

“The Warren Water Company has determined to meet the request for lower water rates. Heretofore the consumer furnishing his own meter has paid at the rate of 50 cents per thousand gallons for water, subject to a minimum charge of $10,000 per year for the meter usually installed, i. e., 5/8 inch. Where the water company has furnished and maintained the meter the rate has been 50 cents per thousand gallons for water, subject to a minimum charge of $15 per year for a 5/8-inch meter. The water company has determined to reduce the rate per thousand gallons from 50 cents to 40 cents, a reduction of 20 per cent., and has also decided to reduce the minimum charge where the company furnishes and maintains a 5/8-inch meter from $15 per annum to $12 per annum, a reduction of 20 per cent. In other words, heretofore, for a minimum charge of $10 the consumer furnishing his own meter has been allowed 20,000 gallons of water per year and has paid 50 cents per thousand gallons for any excess over 20,0″0 gallons. Commencing July 1, 1912, the $10 minimum charge per annum will secure 25,000 gallons of water, an increase of 25 per cent., and the charge for any additional quantiy used will be at the rate of 40 cents instead of 50 cents per thousand gallons. Heretofore, where the company has furnished the meter 30,000 gallons of water have been allowed for a minimum of $15 per annum, while under the new rate the same quantity of water, 30,000 gallons will be allowed for the reduced minimum of $12 per annum.”
