Our water rates have risen astronomically, FAR outpacing inflation over the last few years, to of course invoke monetary pain if we did not cut back individually on water usage in order to save and use the economic hammer to invoke us all to change consumption behavior. Without challenging their baseline formulas for each of our bills...(do you really understand yours? I do not and I have a college degree) but enough is enough...times are tough, water bills are "after tax dollars" as we say and I feel now is the time for EBMUD to respond to the cascade of moisture and adjust rates...we were at 104% of normal last year, and now at 165% of normal in the Sierra snowpack. The reservoirs are releasing water like mad to prevent flooding. Let's speak up and demand a rollback of "drought" past imposed rate increases which are no longer justifiable. We may find a lamentable familiar salary and pension abuse....can anyone enlighten us how much these guys actually make and when they can retire? Is this public information?
