The pandemic has underscored the importance of EBMUD’s role in safeguarding public health with every hand wash and every flush. EBMUD, a not-for-profit public agency, supports your East Bay water and wastewater systems with a budget and rates designed to protect public health and infrastructure.

CP_MJ21_Bill_Breakdown_Chart_Image_250x225.pngAs part of EBMUD’s two-year rate plan, the District is proposing rate increases of 4% for water service and 4% for wastewater service in the first year and an additional 4% for each service in the second year. If approved, the rates would take effect July 1, 2021 (Fiscal Year 2022) and July 1, 2022 (Fiscal Year 2023), respectively. To explain the proposed rates, EBMUD has mailed a Proposition 218 notice to property owners and customers in the EBMUD service area. The EBMUD Board of Directors will consider the proposed rates at a public hearing on June 8, 2021 at 1:15 p.m. For updates and details on the budget process, visit https://ebmud.com/rates.
