Bill of contention|
Resident hot about higher water rates
By K. FRANKE SANTOS Riverside Press-Enterprise (CA) November 23, 2004
RIALTO - Faith Jones wants to know why her water bill is so high.
The 55-year-old, who lives on a limited income, thinks that the water rate increase imposed in April, along with a surcharge to pay for both perchlorate cleanup and litigation, was too drastic.
Rialto resident Faith Jones questions why she is being charged monthly on her water bill for perchlorate cleanup.
"It's true they hadn't raised it in a long time, but they could have snuck up on that one instead of immediately going double," she said.
But the thing that most irritates her is the perchlorate charge, which she doesn't think she should pay. Last month, it made up about 15 percent of her bill.
