Effective November 1, 2019, the amount of the proposed sewer use charge shall be $5.84 (five dollars and eighty-four cents) times the number of 100 cubic feet of water metered to each property as determined by meter readings of the Aquarion Water Company or the Town of Westerly Water Division or, in the instance of a private water supply, meters provided specifically for the purpose of measuring water use. Sewer use shall be invoiced and payable at six-month intervals. So as to adjust for water used prior to and subsequent to the November 1, 2019, change of rate, the following interim charges are as follows: Billing area Water use period Rate Stonington June 1, 2019 - Nov.30, 2019 $ 5.40 per 100 cubic feet Mystic Aug 1, 2019 - Jan 31, 2020 $ 5.58 per 100 cubic feet Pawcatuck Oct 1, 2019 - March 30, 2020 $ 5.75 per 100 cubic feet For each succeeding six-month period the charge shall be $ 5.84 per 100 cubic feet until revised. The use charge shall apply to all connected properties without exception including municipally owned and all other tax-exempt properties. The charge for properties not connected for an entire billing period shall be adjusted proportionately to the number of days within the period that the property was connected. The minimum charge shall be $ 45.63 per six-month period.

The Water Pollution Control Authority will adjust its charges according to measured water that is not returned to the sewer. In order to be eligible for an adjustment, property owners must make proper application and install at their expense a metering system acceptable to and specifically approved by the Authority that distinguishes between water returned to the Town sewer and water otherwise used. The owner of the property against which the use charge is levied shall be liable for payment. Invoices for payment will be mailed to the owner at six (6) month intervals and are payable within thirty (30) days of the mailing. After thirty (30) days, interest as prescribed by statute will be added to the unpaid balance until payment. Dated at Stonington, Connecticut this 13th day of September 2019.
