Proposed Clallam water rate increases to come under public scrutiny

Water customers of the Clallam County Public Utility District will have three chances next week to tell the Board of Commissioners how they feel about a proposed rate increase and proposed “conservation rates.”

The proposed residential rate increase for eight of the district’s nine water systems is 5 percent for both the fixed daily charge and the consumption charge, which is based upon usage.

The proposed residential rate increase for the district’s Island View water system in Clallam Bay is 7 percent for both the fixed daily charge and the consumption charge.

Commercial water rates in eight of the district’s nine water systems would increase by 5 percent for the consumption charge.

Commercial water rates in the Island View water system would increase by 7 percent for the consumption charge.

Residential customers who use up to 800 cubic feet, or 6,000 gallons, per month would see about a $1.50 per month increase in their water bills under the proposed increase.

THREE PUBLIC HEARINGS on the proposed Clallam County Public Utility District water rate increases:

* Port Angeles: 1:30 p.m. May 16 at Clallam PUD’s Port Angeles office, 2431 E. U.S. Highway 101.

* Clallam Bay: 6 p.m. May 16 at Clallam Bay School, 16933 State Highway 112.
