Water Rates

Water Rates are set by the Board of Selectmen based on recommendations of the Director of Public Works and Town Manager.  The rates cover the full cost of the water enterprise including treatment costs, distribution expenses, administrative expenses, debt service and indirect costs. 

While it is easy to compare water rates between communities, it is really a comparison between apples and oranges as all communities are different.  The document below provides additional information about Hanover's water rates, including detailed instructions on how to calculate your water bill and more information on the cost of water in Hanover.
