Rate Increase for El Paso Water Utilities Customers

Yesterday, the Public Service Board approved a rate increase for El Paso Water Utilities Customers.  Beginning March 1st of this year,  “Stormwater fees will go up about 35 cents more for the average home, or $3.21 to $3.56. For water and sewer, the average rate would go up $4.52, from $41.56 to $46.08. In Las Cruces, the average home pays $33.41. Commercial properties will see an increase of $18.17.”

According to the KVIA story, EPWU is seeking grants to try and lower the rate increase.  However, the rate increase will go into effect before any grant money has been obtained.
