Proposed San Diego Sewer Rate Spike for Single-Family Homes Moves to September Vote

Sewer rates for San Diegans in single-family homes would increase nearly 17 percent next year and a total of 31 percent over the next four years under a revised rate hike proposal scheduled for a Sept. 21 City Council vote.

The proposal would reduce sewer rates for most businesses, condos and apartments based on two comprehensive studies showing those customers have been paying too much, while single-family homes haven’t been paying enough.
