Water Bill Help May Be Coming to Low-Income CaliforniansHunter Worsfold
Help may be coming to some Californians when it comes to their water bill. A bill that creates a new state program to help low-income Californians pay their water and sewage bills is now expected to be sent to Gov. Gavin Newsom for his signature. The bill passed overwhelmingly by California lawmakers. In 2021, nearly 650,000 residential and 46,000 business accounts owed more than $315 million in unpaid water and wastewater bills. This is partly do to the increase of water rates that have seen such increases as 45% between 2007 and 2015. The proposed legislature, which is a first of it’s kind in the country, is said to help alleviate some of these troubles. The plan unfortunately doesn’t have any allocated funding for the project and thus won’t be available until at least next year.
