Water Rate Increased Today
May 15th, 2009

The Water Board today voted to raise rates 12.9 percent, a slightly smaller increase than their original proposal of a 14 percent hike. The Department of Environmental Protection said the lower hike was possible because they were able to cut operating costs, more people are paying their bills on time and energy costs have dropped. They also softened the regulations for pursuing suspected water thieves.
