Clarksburg, Massachusetts has raised its water district’s utility rates. 

Residents who use the Briggsville Water District in Clarksburg will see their annual utility rate rise from $200 to $300 on average.

iBerkshires reports the previous rate generated $13,000 a year, which the town says isn’t enough. Clarksburg wants to expand its water storage capacity.

The long-term goal is to convert to a metered service, so those who use more water, pay more for the utility.

The change will be effective November 1st.
