Under the rate increases, the average non-residential customer’s (hotels, office buildings, laundromats, restaurants) combined water and sewer charges will increase an average of 5% each year through 2013.

In the last four years, your water rates have funded dozens of upgrades to our City’s water reservoirs, pipelines and pump stations as part of the voter-approved Water System Improvement Program to ensure you continue to receive great drinking water, even after the next major earthquake.
