ACT - Safe Drinking Water Act Admin Fee

There has been a change in the amount of the Safe Drinking Water Act Administrative Fee that the State of Louisiana charges each water customer.  In the past the State collected $3.20 once a year (CBB collected this in July each year).  Beginning in January 2017 the fee has been increased to $12.00 per year and CBB will be collecting this at the rate of $1.00 per month on your water bill.  This fee is used by the State to administer the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act.  Once collected the fee is remitted to the State.
