Will there be a cost to me when the Borough replaces my galvanized service line?

The Borough will pay the cost of replacing galvanized service lines - both the Borough's portion from main to curb, and the customer's portion from curb to the meter. The Borough will, however, will raise water rates in order to have the funds to repay debt taken on to pay this cost.  The amount of this rate increase is unknown at this time, until we receive actual bid prices on the line replacement, and find out whether we will receive grants and/or low interest loans to help lower those debt service costs.
