Greenville Utilities considers water and sewer hike

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -
Higher water and sewer prices in Pitt County. Greenville Utility customers might be in for a rate increase.

The company proposes a 7% increase for water and and a nearly 9% hike for sewer. A spokesperson for GUC says their rates are well below the average---compared to other providers in our state. The hike could raise your bills about $5 a month.

"GUC's water and sewer rates have not kept up with the increasing cost of providing services and meeting long term infrastructure needs and meeting regulatory requirements," Sue Hatch said. 

The company's proposing the hike at its Board of Commissioners this month. If approved, it takes effect May 1st.
