Brown-bag discussion set on proposed water rate increases

By
From page A3 | August 10, 2011 |

The Davis Downtown Business Association will host a brown-bag lunch presentation on proposed increases to city of Davis water rates from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday.

The discussion is presented by the DDBA’s Visioning and Community Relations Committee and will take place at the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, 303 B St. in downtown Davis.

The increases have been proposed by the city of Davis to fund the Woodland-Davis Clean Water project, a major effort to tap into Sacramento River surface water by 2017. Both Davis and Woodland have historically relied on groundwater, which city officials say is an unsustainable resource in terms of quality, supply and compliance with state and federal regulation.

Under the plan, water rates could nearly triple for the typical commercial property owner over the next five years.

Jacques DeBra, city of Davis utilities manager, will describe the project and proposed rate increases. Brown-bag lunch attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and share their thoughts.

In particular, they will learn how the rates are proposed to increase over time, what policies underlie the rate proposal, and how to participate in the public hearing process.

For more information, contact Katy Zane at [email protected] or (530) 756-8763.
