Rate Increase Notification

Nuevo Water Company (NWC), like many other utilities throughout California, is facing the constant rising cost to maintain infrastructure and improve its water system. NWC’s Board has worked diligently to minimize rate increases and keep operational costs as low as possible. Due to the rise in price of supplies and materials, chemical treatment, energy costs, supplemental water for blending purposes and needed system upgrades a rate increase is necessary and will go into effect with the October 2022 billing cycle.
