Pasadena Water and Power Issues Notice of Public Hearing for Water Rate Structure and Adjustments

Public Hearing Scheduled for Monday, June 3

PASADENA, Calif.—Pasadena City Council will hold a public hearing on Monday, June 3, 2024, at 5:30 p.m. to consider the adoption of adjustments to the existing water rates and rate structure. The public is encouraged to participate. Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) mailed a public hearing notice to water customers. The notice includes a recommended rate structure redesign and adjustment information as well as details regarding the public hearing.

PWP is committed to providing reliable and high-quality water to the community and is proposing the water rate adjustments to help cover rising operating costs and provide funding for critical improvements to water infrastructure.

Individual customer bill impacts will vary based on customer type, water meter size, and amount of water used. To help customers estimate potential impacts the proposed adjustments may have on their water bill, PWP developed an online “bill estimator,” which is a simplified version of all billing inputs (actual bills may vary). The intent is to provide customers with a general sense of how their household budgets might be impacted based on individual projections of their water use. The bill estimator also shows the changes proposed to be effective for sewer and refuse services from the City of Pasadena Public Works Department.

Community meetings regarding the PWP water rate adjustments will be held:

Wednesday, April 24 at 6 p.m.
