Newcastle residents can anticipate increases as they open their water and sewer bills this month after the Coal Creek Utility District Board of Commissioners adopted new water and sewer rates for 2012 at its Jan. 11 meeting.
The new rates take effect this month.
The average single-family household will see their monthly water bill increase $4.48 and their monthly sewer bill increase approximately 80 cents in 2012, according to the district.
Water rates are scheduled to increase 12 percent in 2012 — with more than half of that increase due to the higher cost of water purchased from Seattle Public Utilities.
