To residents of East Plantation Utility District:
We have not increased the sewer/ water rates for the District since 2016. Unfortunately, the sewer treatment plant, which is over fifty years old and jointly owned by RPMUD and EPUD, will require that substantial repairs be made in 2020. EPUD’s share of the repair cost approaches $400,000. EPUD also needs to repair a major drainage area within the District’s boundaries. The details of the increase are in the attached rate order. The sewer rate will increase $10 per month. The minimum water rate for up to 8,000 gallons per month will not change. The rates above the minimum are detailed in the rate order.
The Board appreciates your understanding of the need for the increase. We still believe that our rates are below the majority of our neighboring providers.
