Water bills to rise

Finally, I have water bill bragging rights around here.

The Alameda County Water District is proposing raising rates by 6 percent, increasing the bimonthly service charge for the typical customer from $10.08 to $10.68.

The new annual rate for the Tri-City area would be $73.96 — That’s exactly four cents higher than what I have to pay with East Bay MUD in Berkeley, as long as I don’t get dinged with the surcharge.

Both districts are among the lowest in the Bay Area.

Burlingame is the most expensive at $152.22 per year.
San Jose is the cheapest at $58.69
