From the NY Post:
Relief is on the way for homeowners hosed for years with double-digit increases in their water bills.
The city Department of Environmental Protection today will introduce a four-year efficiency plan expected to slash future hikes, The Post has learned.
The DEP paid the environmental consulting firm Veolia Water to figure out ways to hack $100 million to $200 million off its roughly $1.2 billion operation.
Fully implemented, the plan would lower the rate of regular water-bill increases by 3 to 6 percent annually.
The water bill for a single-family home currently averages $877. The projected reduction would reduce future hikes and save customers $27 to $54 annually, sources said.
