Water Rates Increase

The Arizona Corporation Commission has finally after months of back and forth discussions agreed to raise the base sewer rate for Far West Water and Sewer customers by 162%. The Yuma Sun is reporting that the current rate of $21.75 a month will rise to $39.05 and then six months later will see another increase, this time to $56.92 a month. The utility has claimed for several months that their financial condition is grim and needed the rate increase in order to continue operating. The increases could go into effect as soon as October 1st.
