Cal Water proposes new round of rate hikes

Jul 23, 2015 8:12 PM by News Staff

Just as California Water Service customers are becoming accustomed to the higher water rates that began last year, the utility company is already proposing a new round of higher rates for 2017 and beyond.

California Water Service Company, a publically traded for-profit company, has submitted a proposal for higher rates for its customers in Chico, Oroville, Willows and Marysville to the California Public Utilities Commission.

The plan asks that all four of those communities be merged into one district, and while it’s early in the process, preliminary estimates have rates rising for the typical household between $5 and $9 a month, depending on where you live.

Customers can track the proposal or have questions answered on the California Public Utilities Commission website.
