Rate increases on the horizon for CVWD

Customers of the Crescenta Valley Water District (CVWD) can expect to see the cost of their water rates rise in 2012.
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD), a consortium of various cities and water districts across Southern California, is facing a 7.5% increase in the costs of importing its water to its member water districts. The MWD is the CVWD’s main provider of water.
CVWD’s board of directors will hold a meeting on Tuesday, July 12 at 7 p.m. to vote on its 2011-2012 budget, which will determine how CVWD customers will be affected by these rate increases.
The public is encouraged to attend.
