Lynchburg Water Bill Set To Increase


Lynchburg, VA - A little more than $2 tacked on to your water usage fee is what Lynchburg city officials are saying you can expect, after city council signed off on the increase Tuesday.

Council approved a 2% water usage fee increase, and a $2 increase to the account charge. Both have increased steadily over the last five years.

Water department officials say infrastructure and maintenance costs are on the rise. Lynchburg has one of the oldest water systems in the country.

Even with the increases though, Lynchburg is well below the state average which increases at 6%-8% every year.
