Watertown's Hydro Plant Sees More Revenue Thanks To May's Rain

Posted: Updated:

It's raining money for the city of Watertown.

Power made at its hydro facilities is bought by National Grid.

So when it rains more, there's more water and more water means more power is produced - and the meter was spinning in May.

According to the city comptroller, revenue for this May compared to last May is up $435,000, or 158 percent!

That's a dry May compared to a very wet May.

Here's how the revenue stacks up to what was budgeted - Watertown is about a half million dollars ahead of what was projected for this revenue stream. The budget year ends in June.
