Ridgewood NJ, “Our goal at Ridgewood Water is to provide customers with safe, continuous, and dependable drinking water. As part of our customer commitment, we want to tell you about a change to your current/upcoming bill.”
Effective first quarter 2019, the Facilities Charge that is a portion of your water bill, will increase as approved by the Village of Ridgewood Council (Ordinance #3637) on June 28, 2018. The Facilities Charge is a fixed quarterly fee that helps fund the cost for maintaining our treatment and delivery systems, meter installations, meter reading and billing. This charge is based on the size of the meter installed at the property and does not vary with consumption. No changes have been made to the rates on water usage.
Approximately 92 percent of customers use a 5/8″ meter and are likely to see an average increase of about 6% in their current total annual bill.
