|Every five years, the City of Chula Vista conducts a review of sewer rates to ensure there is continued adequate funding for operation and maintenance of the sewer system and treatment of the City’s wastewater system. The review includes rising costs of energy, materials, and water treatment services. Rates are then proposed to cover costs of providing these services.
A single family home is billed for sewer service based on their lowest average water consumption for two consecutive winter months. Currently, a single family home pays approximately $40.16 per month. The new proposed rates will increase this rate by approximately $3.55 for a total of $43.71 per month.
So that residents can ask questions and receive more detailed explanation of the proposed upcoming increase, several community meetings are planned. Input from these meetings will be included in the public hearing scheduled to be discussed at the December 17 City Council meeting. The public is invited to any of the following four community meetings: Wednesday, November 6, 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Salt Creek Community Center, 2710 Otay Lakes Road, or 6 to 8 p.m. at Joseph Casillas Elementary School, 1130 East J Street; Thursday, November 7, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Otay Recreation Center, 3554 Main Street, or 6 to 8 p.m. at Feaster Charter School, 670 Flower Street.
