Rates and Charges
Water and wastewater rates support the work EBMUD does to bring you high-quality, reliable service. Rates are reviewed annually by EBMUD's Board of Directors, and typically go into effect July 1.
Following a public hearing on June 11, 2013, the EBMUD Board of Directors approved rate increases necessary to maintain critical infrastructure and to deliver the best drinking water to East Bay customers. Even with proposed increases, EBMUD water rates remain among the lowest in the Bay Area. Of the 13 local water agencies surveyed, EBMUD's rates are lower than ten of them.
