The Wilson County Board of Commissioners approved the Water Services Committee’s recommended rate increase for Wilson County Water customers effective January 1, 2016. This rate adjustment is needed due to increases the county is charged for purchasing water, the maintenance costs of our current system and funding the system's depreciation.
