Water Rates - Proposed Changes


Last updated 4/22/2016 at 3:29am

The Borrego Water District's proposed rate changes for fiscal years 2017 – 2021 will decrease the monthly base service rates about 20 percent, while increasing residential rates for tier one (less than seven units per monthly use) from $2.42 to 3.16/unit in 2017.

Tier two (over seven units per month) will increase to $3.48/unit. Commercial rates will increase from $2.42 to 3.35/unit, and sewer revenue will increase 9 percent in 2017 and 4 percent for the following four years. That is, some sewer rates will increase and others will decrease, based on Proposition 218 requirements to match costs and revenues by user class.
