New water rates set for Eugene

New water rates set for Eugene

November 28th, 2012 in News

Starting Jan. 1, new rates will take effect for customers on the Eugene water system.

The Cole County Commission on Tuesday approved a rate that starts with customers paying $26 for the first 2,000 gallons of water they use, plus $6 for each additional 1,000 gallons used.

That means the "average" customer who uses 5,000 gallons each month, would see their bill jump from $16.32 to $56.
