Water supply shortage rates
During a Phase II water supply shortage, the City Council may increase water rates, other than Tier 1 Life-line rates, by an amount necessary, as determined by the City Council. The increase in water rates, which could average approximately 10 to 15 percent above the pre-water shortage rates, may vary among categories of customers.
