Water Rates

Effective: March 1, 2022

The Village of Angola Board of Trustees has approved an increase on the Village of Angola Water Rates effective March 1, 2022. The Village of Angola water customers will not see any change to the $10 (DBT) infrastructure charge. This charge is billed on each water billing. The infrastructure charge is used to rebuild the water fund to protect costs associated with maintaining and servicing the Village water mains. The Village Board has worked hard to resist any large increase in the cost to our water customers. The Village will continue to offer the quality of water and dedicated service it has always provided to our water customers.

Inside the Village Minimum $36.75

Per 1,000 gallons after min. $6.95

Over 200,000 gallons           $6.17           

Oustide the Village Minimum $43.60

Per 1,000 gallons after min.    $7.50

Over 200,000 gallons             $6.74           

Water Meter Law Update

Per Local Law #5-2019, approved by the Village Board of Trustees on July 8, 2019, changes have been made to sections 240-4.5A, 240-4.8C & 240-4.8D of the Water Distribution System chapter of the Village of Angola Municipal Code.  These sections state that all users of the water distribution system should have their own separate water meter, rather than having multiple users on one water meter.  If individual meters are not installed per user, the minimum water charge will be invoiced per user.

For example, when there are multiple units in one home, each unit shall have a separate meter.  If there are not separate meters, a minimum fee will be charged per unit.
