RATES AND CHARGES

 

Lower Bartlett Water Precinct provides water service to properties within the Precinct boundaries and to properties within its PUC-approved Franchise Area. The charges for water service include a minimum charge (Base Charge) and a metered water usage charge.  The Precinct has three billing periods (April, August and December). The Base Charge and water usage will be the only charges in the second billing period. Users will be allowed 10,000 gallons in each billing period at the base charge. Usage over the 10,000 gal. will be an additional charge at the rate of $2.75 per thousand gallons. Further, properties within the Precinct are assessed a tax, which is included on the Town of Bartlett Real Estate Tax bill. Properties in the Franchise Area are not taxed but pay an equivalent charge (Semi-Annual Charge), which is included on the water bill. Tax rates are set by the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration based on the Annual Budget voted by the Precinct at its annual meeting. For example the 2016 tax rate was $2.27 per $1,000 of assessed valuation. Set forth below is a breakdown of the of Precinct’s water usage charges.
