WSSC customers to pay more
Montgomery and Prince George’s county residents will pay an average $13.80 more per quarter for water and sewer services beginning July 1 as part of the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission's new $1.1-billion budget approved Thursday.
Both county councils approved the utility’s budget in a joint session. The 8.5 percent rate increase will fund increased costs for sewage treatment and measures the agency must take to comply with a legal consent decree that governs sewer overflows, said WSSC spokesman John White.
