Tighe & Bond Publishes 2013 Ct Water & Sewer Rate Surveys

Westfield, Mass. – May 6, 2014 – Tighe & Bond recently published the results of its 2013 Connecticut Water and Sewer Rate Surveys. The results from these latest surveys indicate that residential users in Connecticut pay approximately $467 and $406 annually for water and sewer respectively. This represents increases of 11.6% and 10% above the 2011 averages.

Since 1998, Tighe & Bond has gathered and published Connecticut water and sewer rates data that municipal government, regional authorities and private water suppliers can use as a benchmarking tool for comparing their rates against other suppliers in the state. This can be particularly useful information when suppliers are considering adjustments to their current rates or rate structures.

Using rate information that survey participants provided, Tighe & Bond has calculated the annual average homeowner’s cost for water and sewer service based on the consumption of 72,000 gallons or 96 hundred cubic feet of water. The survey – which includes typical annual homeowner water and sewer costs for systems throughout Connecticut – also provides information regarding rate structures and billing cycles.

These survey results are available to the public online at
