SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – People in the East Bay could soon see their water bills increase.
The East Bay Municipal Utility District is proposing a 4% rate increase that could start as early as July 1.
Under the proposal, rates would increase again by another 4% in July 2022.
The money is meant to help with infrastructure projects like replacing pipelines and preparing for droughts.
EMBUD’s board of directors will vote on the proposal following a public hearing next month.
