WSSC Rate Change Alert July 1, 2019:
WSSC, the water provider for Prince George’s and Montgomery counties in suburban Washington DC is implementing a significant change to their water and sewer rates. WSSC is changing the rate schedule that they used for the last 25 years from 16 different rate structures to just 4.
About 30% of WSSC customers (mostly commercial accounts) will see a decrease in their water bills, but most customers will see an increase. Unfortunately, the increases for those that have already lowered their water and sewer usage are significant (30 - 40%).
