This forum will discuss:
• current and long-term projected costs of operating and maintaining the water and wastewater systems
• capital infrastructure improvements needed to repair and update EBMUD’s aging water and wastewater systems
• the operational and financial stability of the water and wastewater utilities
EBMUD’s proposed budget calls for increased water and wastewater service charges for a two-year period commencing on July 12, 2017 and July 1, 2018. This rate increase would include a 9.25% increase in FY17/18 and 9.0% increase in FY18/19 for water service. Charges for wastewater service will increase 5% each year.
If you are interested in learning more about how these rate increases will be applied, or if you have questions that you would like answered, please join me on Thursday, July 6, 2017 from 6:30pm-8:30pm.
