Water rates hike in Cambria
September 1, 2014
Water rates will effectively double in Cambria Monday, as utility users begin paying for an emergency water system.
Previously, the average residential water bill in Cambria was $48.02. It is now $109.02 when the water system is in operation and $85.02 when it is not.
The Cambria CSD board unanimously approved the rate hike in July.
The emergency water project is expected to include wells, three treatment processes and an evaporation pond. Construction has begun on the project, but the CSD is still waiting for final approval from regulatory agencies.
In totality, Cambria’s new water supply system is expected to cost about $9 million.
