Notice of Public Hearing on Proposed Water Rate Increases (June 25, 2015)

Mid-Peninsula Water District (MPWD) is a community-owned and governed public agency that provides water service to Belmont, San Carlos, and surrounding areas in San Mateo County. This notice is being sent to inform you that MPWD is proposing to increase water rates over the next five (5) years and adopt Water Shortage Emergency Rates designed to recover costs of providing service during periods of drought and reduced water sales. MPWD will hold a public hearing on the proposed rates as follows:

Date: Thursday, June 25, 2015
Time: 6:30 pm
Place: Mid-Peninsula Water District
3 Dairy Lane, Belmont, CA 94002

MPWD relies primarily on revenues from water service charges to fund its costs of providing water service. As such, water rates must be set at levels adequate to fund the costs of operating and maintaining the water system, pay for wholesale water supplied by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), and fund necessary capital investments to keep the water system in good operating condition.

Notice of Increase in Water Rates (May 30, 2014)

Following a formal notice and Proposition 218 majority protest hearing process on May 27, 2010, the MPWD Board of Directors approved a series of up to 9% annual water rate adjustments over a 5-year period (July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2014).

The SFPUC will impose a wholesale water rate increase of 19.6% effective July 1st. That means the charge for wholesale customers, like the MPWD, will be increased from $2.45 CCF to $2.93 CCF. Financing costs for the SFPUC WSIP are the cause for its wholesale rate increase in Fiscal Year (FY) 2014/2015.
