Sacramento is expecting to increase their water and sewer rates this year. The rate increases would take place July 1 of this year and would raise the average residential customer’s bill from $68.15 a month, which calculates to approximately $98.60 by 2019. The higher rates would finance $265.5 million in water projects and $53.5 million in sewer projects by 2020. The city plans to install 42,600 water meters and replace 76 miles of related pipes, and rehab four miles of sewer pipes and 10 pump stations. The biggest expense will be $230 million to finish installing water meters in 2020.
The city of Sacramento has also had a busy schedule of wastewater restoration efforts in the recent past, including the upgrade of the century-old Sacramento River Water Treatment Plant, installing 21,000 meters, rehabilitating 29 groundwater wells and modernizing sewer lines in Oak Park and along Seventh Street. The city is dedicated to assisting more homeowners who are least able to afford higher rates. About 1,600 customers are signed up for a program that saves them as much as $13 a month, and about 1,000 more residents are thought to be eligible.
