Summer is coming and for all our residential customers who like to keep their lawns lush and green, and their gardens plentiful, BPU summer sprinkling rates will soon be in effect. The sprinkling rate will begin after your meters have been read in May. This credit is applied to your sewer charges (waste treatment and waste collection) on the bills you receive in June, July, August, & September. For the above months, your sewer charges will be billed on the monthly average water consumption of your bill from November, December & January.
