Sign up now for city subsidy on water bills

From page A3 | November 13, 2013 |

The city of Davis has introduced a program to help low-income homeowners offset the higher costs of Davis’ new water rates. The first 250 eligible homeowners to apply for the program, will receive a $10 discount on their water bill every month (erroneously reported earlier as $5 per month).

Homeowners who meet the income qualification requirements and who are enrolled in Pacific Gas & Electric’s CARE Program are eligible. A homeowner is the owner-occupant of a parcel in Davis who is listed on the county assessor’s tax roll.

To apply for the program, a homeowner must submit an application to the city that includes proof of participation in the PG&E CARE Program. Eligibility will need to be recertified every year. Currently, the income levels are approximately $30,000 for a household of two or $46,000 for a household of four.

The city estimates that the monthly water bill for a typical single-family home in 2013 will be $30.86. For city services bills generated beginning May 1, 40 percent of the water bill will be determined by a monthly base rate based on water meter size (most households have a 3/4-inch or 1-inch, which would cost $17.33 or $27.13, respectively, in 2013). The remaining 60 percent of the water bill will vary based on consumption, with rates ranging from $1.23 to $2.33 per one hundred cubic feet of water delivered.

By 2015, the formula for calculating water bills will change to a consumption-based fixed rate, where a typical single-family home in 2015 is estimated to have $52.31 in monthly water costs.

The application for the program and more specific information about water rates, including a water rate calculator, can be found on the city’s website at www.water.cityofdavis.org. Or, call the city manager’s office at 530-757-5602.
