Water Rate Increase Coming In Middlesex?

The Middlesex County Board of Supervisors met recently, and tabled action on joining other counties in challenging a State Corporation Commission application for higher water rates by Aqua Virginia Inc. Aqua has filed a request for a rate increase that if approved, would mean customers would pay as much as 40% more for their water. Supervisors said that before they even consider any action, they first want to know just how many households in Middlesex County are served by Aqua, how the rate hike will impact those customers, and they also want to get more feedback from those customers.
