Bedford Co. Water and Sewer Rates Could Go Up

Bedford Co., VA - The Bedford Regional Water Authority board voted Tuesday to advertise a rate increase.

The average customer would pay $7 more monthly for water and sewer starting July 1, if approved.

The increase would go toward capital improvements, including the Smith Mountain Lake line project, preventive measures to aging town infrastructure, and equalizing rates after the town and county systems consolidated.

A public hearing is set for June 17.
