BJWSA customers to see rate increase

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

Customers of the Beaufort Jasper Water Sewer Authority will soon be paying slightly more for their services for the first time in three years.

The company says increases in power, chemicals and fuel, combined with a decrease in demand from residential and commercial customers, caused the rate to change.  

On average, customers will pay about $5 more for service based on roughly 7,000 gallons of water consumption per month starting on July 1st.
