Recent Water Bills

Some facts about your most recent water bill, with a read date of November 9, 2016:

  • Water rates have NOT been increased. They are the same as they were in 2015.

  • The Fixed Service Charge per Meter has NOT been increased.

  • There IS a new Sewer Charge of $0.25/unit of water consumed. This charge is for the Sewer Fund, to help defray the costs of the State-mandated Sanitary Sewer Evaluation Study (SSES – you can read more about this in the Newsletter included with your bill).

  • The water rate for the PEAK season is $6.79/unit of water consumed. The peak season is what is represented on this bill.

  • If you are comparing this bill to a past bill, please make sure you are comparing it to the October 2015  bill. Comparing it to your April 2016 bill is apples to oranges, because your rate of consumption is generally much lower over the winter and the water rate for the off-peak season is $5.77/unit.

  • Please compare the units of consumption from the 2015 and 2016 bills. If there is a large disparity (>15%) there are several possible explanations. You should call or visit the water department billing office at Village Hall to discuss your particular situation. They are available between 8:30 and 4:30.

  • If you don’t have your October 2015 bill to refer to, the water department billing office can provide you that information.

  • You can read your own meter and compare to the reading on your bill. You will need to shine a strong flashlight on the meter to ‘wake it up’, then you can read the current consumption. If the numbers to the left of the decimal are changing very rapidly as you watch, you could have a leak.

Some explanations for unexpected, increased consumption may be:

  • Your previous meter was not running at full flow. All removed meters were independently tested and we have that data. Many meters were so old they were running at less than 40% capacity – which may mean your bills have had artificially low readings for years.

  • Your previous bill(s) was an estimated read.

  • Your previous bill had a different read date – 2015’s “summer” bill was created using the manual meter reading method. This was a time-consuming process which took up to 2 months to complete. This year all meters were read on the same date, November 9. It is possible your current read date is several weeks later than last year and will be picking up additional consumption during a high consumption period, i.e., sprinklers still running. Going forward there will no longer be a variation in read dates – all meters will be read on the same date.

  • You may have a leak in your house or sprinkler system. Our new meters provide electronic readings every 15 minutes and we can look at daily usage for each property and see if there may be evidence of a leak or other unusual activity. If a pipe in your sprinkler system cracked over the winter, you may see a large increase in use and not have seen the underground leak. Check for obvious leaks, such as a running toilet – one running toilet can use up to 200 gallons of water/day (0.25 units/day or 45 units/6 months!).

  • A power spike may have interfered with the settings on your sprinkler – causing it to run more often or for longer times.

There is no one answer for all situations. We are ready to help each resident understand your bill and troubleshoot where necessary.

Beginning on Wednesday, May 11th, Town of Mamaroneck and Village of Larchmont residents will be able to include waxy cartons with their commingled recyclables (glass, plastic and metal recyclables) for collection by the Larchmont Mamaroneck Joint Garbage Disposal Commission. These waxy cartons are used for juice and milk (sometimes called gable-top containers); soup and broth; cream; and egg substitutes.
