City Offers Seniors Discount on Water Bill
Just learned that seniors and disabled folks can get a 25 percent discount on the water portion of their water and sewer bill. This applies to owner occupied-residences but apparently not to condo associations. Here is the text from the Boston Water and Sewer Commission site, along with a link to an application form that you can download:
Homeowners 65 years of age or older or fully disabled homeowners living in one to four family homes are eligible for a 25 percent discount on the water portion only of their bill. Sewer and miscellaneous charges are not included within the discount. Only owner-occupied residential properties are eligible for the discount.
To apply for a discount on your water portion charges, you must fill out the Discount Form, available at BWSC offices at 980 Harrison Avenue, Boston or by downloading the Discount Application form. In addition, senior citizens must provide proof of age such as a birth certificate, driver’s license or MBTA senior citizen pass. For disabled persons, you must provide a doctor’s note or an Award Letter from Social Security or the Veterans’ Administration.
For additional information, please contact the BWSC Customer Service Department at 617-989-7800.
