WATER RATE INCREASES
It was long overdue! The monthly charge for water is going to increase. Prince's Lakes owns the water utility which gets its water from deep wells located near Blue River in Camp Atterbury. Prince's Lakes then sells water to several surrounding areas including Cordry Sweetwater. A 16% rate increase has been set for 2017. Add to this the expense that CSCD is incurring for the installation of a new water main from the Brown County line to the north water tower and other improvements long needed will result in increased monthly water bills. The average user will see an increase of around $12.50 to their monthly water bill.
