The New York City Water Board voted unanimously yesterday to hike water rates by 11.5 percent - the highest increase in 15 years.
And worse yet, the forecast is that rates will go up again next year at the same steep 11.5 percent level.
The hike, which goes into effect July 1, will add $72 to the average bill for a single family home, bringing it to $699 a year.
