NOTICE OF RATE INCREASES FOR WATER & SEWER CUSTOMERS

The Maidencreek Township Authority will be increasing its water and sewer quarterly service rates by five percent (5%) effective January 1, 2024. The rate increase will be incorporated in the bills being mailed to our customers at the end of January 2024. The average customer consuming 12,000 gallons per quarter will see an increase of $7.72 in their combined water and sewer quarterly billing. The higher cost of goods and services requires us to raise our rates to keep up with the cost of inflation. In addition, the Maidencreek Township Authority experienced flood damage during the July 9, 2023, flood event in excess of $1,000,000.  Customers should anticipate another five percent (5%) rate increase in 2025. We request our customer's understanding while we adjust our rates to reflect the financial obstacles, we encountered in 2023.
