Our rates for EBMUD water have been going up 9% per year for the past decade. I don’t know how they pretend they are only raising rates 4% in the next year.

I would prefer to see a tiered system where the big water users pay a higher rate. Those using a minimum should be rewarded with lower rates. Water is becoming unaffordable for those with limited income.
Also, doesn't EBMUD want people to conserve this precious resource?!

Whenever I travel, I'm reminded that EMBUD provides delicious refreshing water.
