Reclaimed Water Rate Change
Effective July 2012

On May 18, 2011, the Corona City Council approved a rate increase for the commodity charge component of the reclaimed water service fees, and authorized an annual rate increases for both the commodity charge and ready to serve fee through July 2016 for Cost of Living increases (COLA) based on the Consumer Price Index for Riverside County published by the U.S. Department of Labor. The COLA will cover the increase in material, supply and service costs; salary increases are not part of this COLA.
