Foxboro residents may get hit with their third hike in water rates in the past nine months.
On Sept. 30, the board of water and sewer commissioners will meet to discuss and vote on water, reuse, private sewer, and sewer rates.
The board approved increases of six percent twice this year in January and June.
DPW head Roger Hill told the Foxboro Reporter that reasons for the potential hikes include more stringent and more complicated federal and state drinking water rules and standards, the costs of providing treatment, and unfunded regulations mandated by the federal and state government that require asset management of the entire water system.
The hearing will be held at 7:05 p.m. on Monday in the Water Department Office at Town Hall.
