Needs lots of water? Town moves to charge more for large quantities


The Town of Washington has taken up legislatio­n that will charge private companies more for large sums of non-metered water purchased from the town’s system.

Companies and individual­s looking to purchase large sums of water for pools and other needs will owe the town $20 per 1,000 gallons, a 20 percent increase in what was previously charged. A public hearing for the ordinance is expected to be held in June when the change would be implemente­d immediatel­y upon passage.
