Public meetings on how to design a statewide low-income water rate assistance program begin this month

SWRCB logo water boardsThe State Water Resources Control Board will hold a series of public meetings seeking recommendations on how to make drinking water affordable for low-income Californians. Anyone with ideas about how to develop and implement a statewide low-income rate assistance program is encouraged to attend and provide comments. We are also interested in hearing about existing rate assistance programs, and whether they have been successful at helping people to manage their water bills.

Evening workshops are scheduled for October 12 in Fresno, October 19 in Redding, October 26 in Inglewood, November 7 in Oakland, and November 9 in Bakersfield.
