Cranberry hikes water, sewage rates
CRANBERRY TWP — Most Cranberry residents will pay slightly more for water and sewage service beginning in August.
The township’s Board of Supervisors on Thursday approved updates to Cranberry’s water and sewage fee schedule that will raise average water bills from $35 per month to $38 per month beginning with the August bill, and sewage bills will gradually rise from an average of $46 a month in July to an average of $58 per month in August 2023.
The new rates, the township said, will still be lower than in most surrounding municipalities.
Cranberry’s higher water and sewage rates are the result of the township’s first water and sewer rate study since 2009. The township previously increased water rates in 2018 and sewage rates in 2019 without a rate study.
