BCWA to raise water rates by 12%

The Bristol County Water Authority (BCWA) Board of Directors is holding a public hearing on February 3 at 6:30 pm at 450 Child Street in Warren RI 02885 to inform the public that it plans to raise its rates by 12%. If you have comments, please show up at the hearing and voice them. Questions? Call the BCWA at 245 2022. They note that because of a wet summer and spring in 2009 fewer people used water, so their income declined. This doesn't speak well as an incentive to use less water, to use rain barrels and conserve the one thing we have no replacement for. Apparently we have the second highest water rates in the state of Rhode Island, second only to Block Island.
