Proposed increases to water rates for customers of the Rowland Water District will be a topic discussion at a community meeting Monday night.
Ken Deck, general manager of the Rowland Water District, and Mike Holmes, general manager of the Walnut Valley Water District will be the featured co-speakers at the Rowland Heights Community Coordinating Council meeting.
Both plan to discuss the lack of access to a supply of groundwater that is suitable for domestic use and how that forces districts to import it from the Metropolitan Water District. Deck and Holmes will talk about how their two water districts are working together on the water shortage issue.
The presentation at the coordinating council meeting comes a day before the Rowland Water District will conduct a public hearing on possible rate changes.
The district’s board Tuesday will consider a proposed schedule of increases to the rates and service charges during the next five years, according to its website.
Also on the agenda is a proposed provision to automatically adjust the district’s drinking water rates without board action in the same amount as any unscheduled changes in the cost for what is pays wholesale to the Three Valleys Municipal Water District.
