Sewage, Water Rate Hikes Proposed For San Diego City

Jun 24, 2021

San Diego residents and businesses could see their sewage rates rise four years in a row, starting with a 5% hike in January 2022, under a package of proposed water and sewage rate increases that the City Council's budget committee send to the full council Wednesday.

The council will hold hearings and vote in September on a package that also includes a water rate increase from the San Diego County Water Authority.

The sewage rate increase, the first in more than a decade, is intended to match fees with the cost of providing sewage removal and treatment services and to cover infrastructure repair costs, committee members and city staff said at Wednesday's hearing.
