Rates for water service for Connecticut Water customers are approved by the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA).
In addition to your Basic Service charge and Water Usage for your account, your bill may include surcharge or credit line items. These charges have been authorized under state law to allow for recovery of certain approved costs between rate cases. The charges must be approved by PURA before being added to the bill. They are applied as a percentage of the amount billed for the Basic Service charge, Water Usage, and miscellaneous service charges approved by PURA.
Everything you need to know about estimated billing.
Your bill will only be estimated if we are unable to obtain an actual meter reading due to an issue with your reading device. Please contact our office to set up an appointment to schedule to have a device installed or repaired (we will have to access your property).
For most of our customers with a consumption history, Connecticut Water will look at your prior year’s usage during the same time period to determine an estimated usage for your home.
There will be a message printed on your bill stating:
