Notice of Proposed Revision to Schedule of Service Charges
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that pursuant to the provisions of Municipal Utilities Authority Law, N.J.S.A. 40:14B-1 et seq., the Kearny Municipal Utilities Authority proposes to promulgate a schedule of revised charges for sewerage treatment within its service district which includes all of South Kearny and the Kearny Meadowlands served or to be served by the Kearny Point Pumping Station of the Authority and specifically to impose revised user charges as follows:
Three (3) user classes will be established for the purpose of distributing the costs for treatment and collection, which will apply to both South Kearny and the Kearny Meadowlands. The user classes are as follows:
All customers with billing based on municipal water utility meter
Customers with billing based on private water meters
Customers with billing based on wastewater meters
A consistent rate will be charged for all Classes. The KMUA base rate for the current year is $6.51 per hundred cubic feet of water consumption (Class I and II) or wastewater metered (Class III). The rate for KMUA PVSC Charges is $4.66. In addition, a surcharge will apply to those customers which have wastewater sampled by PVSC. The surcharge will apply to Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS) discharged which is in excess of the average BOD or TSS concentrations of the Town of Kearny. The surcharge rate shall be the same as that charged to the Town of Kearny by PVSC.
The above revised user charges to become effective January 1, 2021.
