Rate Increases

January 1, 2008 Water Rate Table

How Cost of Water Increase Will Impact Your Bill

On January 1, 2008, the San Diego County Water Authority will be raising the rates for the water it sells to the City of San Diego. Because the City must recover the costs for water purchases the increased charges must "pass through" to its customers.

On Jaunuary 1, 2008, the price per hundred cubic feet (HCF) of water will go up 9 cents per HCF. The 9-cent increase is per HCF regardless of customer class or tier. The base fees are increasing depending on the size of the meter. The vast majority of single-family domestic customers have a meter that is less than an inch in size which means they will see a 14 cent per month increase in their base fee.

The chart below can help you calculate how this "pass through" would impact your bill. As an example, if your meter size is less than an inch, your base fee is increasing 14 cents. On top of that, if you use 7 HCF a month, your commodity charge would go up 63 cents (7 HCF muliplied by the 9 cent per HCF increase). Therefore your total bill is increasing 77 cents a month.
