Water supply shortage rates

During a Phase I water supply shortage, the City Council may increase water rates, other than Tier 1 Lifeline rates, by an amount necessary, as determined by the City Council. The increase in water rates, which could average approximately up to 10 percent above the pre-water shortage rates, may vary among categories of customers. Examples of categories are single family residential, multi-family residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, temporary service, municipal, landscape, and fire lines.
