Water & Sewer

ATTENTION:  If you have questions or comments about the water/sewer rate increase effective for your February billing, or the meter replacement program underway at this time, please e-mail us at water.sewer@yorkcountygov.com

METER REPLACEMENT

In order to improve efficiency and aid in meter reading, York County Water/Sewer has hired a private contractor, M & E Construction, to replace many of the older water meters throughout our system. You may see workers from M & E performing these meter “change-outs” during the day in your neighborhood. We hope the work will be finished within a few months and during this time if you have any questions or comments please email us at water.sewer@yorkcountygov.com. Thank you.

WATER & SEWER RATE INCREASE

York County will increase water and sewer rates effective January 1, 2018.  The coming rate increase is the first in 15 years.  The average residential York County customer will see an approximate 16.5% combined rate increase based on 4,500 gallons of use per month.  All York County customers will see a rate increase reflected on their February billing statement.  The new rate schedule is below in documents.  If you have any questions or comments, please e-mail us at water.sewer@yorkcountygov.com.  Thank you.
