2020 Water Rate Changes

The City of Port Hueneme operates a vital water system that provides our customers safe, reliable drinking water.

We have a long-term plan to stay on top of infrastructure needs, encourage conservation and ensure an affordable, reliable water supply. As we invest in a secure water future for the community that relies on us, changes to the way your water bill is calculated are needed.

Under the proposed new water rate structure in 2020:

  • Approximately 70% of our customers - those who use less than 7 HCF (hundred cubic feet) - will experience lower water bills in 2020.

  • Customers who use more than 7 hundred cubic feet will see an increase in their water bill compared to the current rate structure.

To learn more about how we came to this new structure, how it encourages water conservation and enables the critical infrastructure improvements we're planning in the future, join us at one of two information sessions we're hosting in the coming weeks:

Information Session

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 | 6 p.m.

City Hall, 250 N. Ventura Rd.

Information Session

Wednesday, December 18, 2019 | 6 p.m.

City Hall, 250 N. Ventura Rd.

Please note: Identical information will be presented at each session.

City Council will vote on the proposed rate structure at a public hearing scheduled for Monday, February 3, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. If approved, new rates will go into effect in February of 2020 and appear on customer bills in March.
