When was the last time water rates were increased?


LADWP has not increased basic water rates since July 2009 when a 3.1% water revenue adjustment went into effective. Subsequently, shortage year rates have been in place since June 1, 2009. In March 2012, LADWP received approval to raise the water quality adjustment factor from $0.50 to $0.80–a 35-cent adjustment on water rates.
