Billing Issue

Bangor Water recently obtained an Order from the Maine Public Utilities Commission relating to certain billing errors that occurred during 2023, following the District’s last approved rate increase.  The District had utilized billing rates based on a rate schedule approved by the Commission on January 1, 2023, even though portions of customers’ usage during this billing period had included fourth quarter 2022 and should have been prorated. Bangor Water will be issuing refunds to current customers in the form of bill credits and sending out refund checks to former customers to their last known address. The District has taken steps to ensure that similar billing errors do not occur in the future. We apologize for these errors and remain committed to providing quality service to our customers at just and reasonable rates.
