MWD’s board voted against the damaging proposal that would have increased the San Diego region’s water treatment cost in 2017 by 77 percent due to a new fixed charge.
Thank you to all of the organizations and ratepayers who helped defeat that proposal!
Instead, MWD voted to retain its current methodology for assessing the costs of water treatment.
MWD’s actions today increase its 2017 rates for untreated water by 12.1 percent; treated water by 3.9 percent; and transportation by 6.2 percent.
Once the MWD board meeting video is posted, we will include a live link, so check back with us soon.
