The Value of Water and Current Rates

Water is essential to life. Without it, there would not be any food, manufacturing, fire protection and electricity, to name a few.

RWA consumers get this life-sustaining product delivered straight to their homes and businesses for less than a penny a gallon. The typical family of four in the Greater New Haven area uses about 205 gallons of water a day and pays about $53 per month. Water is one of the most economical expenses you pay for, and you get a lot of value for your money. To learn how the RWA spends your water dollars, check out our video and fact sheet.

 

Rates are made up of two basic charges, the service charge and the usage charge.
