What EID’s GM and Board Don’t Tell You About Water Rates

October 7, 2011

EID’s Board-approved Water rates are up 85% since 2003 under the current Board.  And, another 28% is on the way for 2012!

EID’s “All-in” Water rates are 23% to 110% higher than the four surrounding Water districts of Folsom, South Tahoe, Citrus Heights and Sacramento.
(As a Special District, EID gets Property Tax revenues to subsidize rates, but deceptively fails to include these subsidies when presenting comparisons of rates/full costs vs. near-by districts.)
