The utility is holding a public hearing tonight at the Berkeley Township Municipal Building.

Director of Operations Jim Mastrokalos says they’re requesting a 20 percent increase to cover millions of dollars in infrastructure improvements made over the last two years.




“We’ve expended upwards of $18 million dollars in the infrastructure. As part of that, there’s been water main replacements, treatment plant refurbishment’s, customer service and billing systems.”

He says the public hearing is a part of the process in requesting the rate increase from the Board of Public Utilities.

The rate increase will affect 50,000 United Water Toms River customers in Berkeley, Toms River and South Toms River. Mastrokalos says the rate hike will increase the average customers bill anywhere from $4 to $8 dollars a month depending on consumption.

United Water is based in Harington Park, NJ. It’s parent company is French-based Suez Environment.

The meeting takes place at 5:30.
