SoCal’s water district just committed billions to WaterFix plan. What could it mean for your DWP bill?
Los Angeles residents and businesses can expect to see their water utility rates go up under a proposed multi-billion dollar project to build water tunnels in Northern California, but by how much is now being questioned by activists and some city leaders.
The Metropolitan Water District voted Tuesday to support and fund the California WaterFix project, which would build a pair of tunnels to go under Sacramento-San Joaquin delta.
The project is aimed at diverting water into the State Water Project system, which is the water that the district then sells wholesale to utilities like the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
