United Water Surcharge Hearing

After several hearings to discuss increases in Rockland County United Water bills, residents of Orangetown will be holding another one, led mostly by those opposed to a surcharge request filed by the company. According to Supervisor of Orangetown Andy Stewart the hearing was set up to give residents a chance to speak their mind and stay on the same page as the Public Service Commission, which is currently deciding whether or not to allow United Water to increase rates by $4.96 per month or $59.54 per year, the company is hoping to obtain about $55 million to pay for the Hudson River water treatment plant to create another source of drinking water. United Water spokesman Deb Rizzi stated that the company invested money and they are expecting it back. A PSC spokesman James Denn stated that the group is looking forward to hearing from residents to better make a decision. The hearing will take place on May 22 at 7:00 PM in the court room at the Orangetown Town Hall.
