re: Proposed 2015-16 Water Rates
June 9, 2015

I oppose the proposed water rate increases.

While I appreciate the need to recover for increased charges from the SFPUC, the increased rates by the Menlo Park Municipal Water District disproportionately fall on those of us who currently use the least water, in large part because of our conservation efforts over the past four years.

The Tier 1 rate is proposed to rise about 75% from current levels, while the rates of those in Tier 2 whose consumption exceeds 6ccf per month will rise by only 37%.
I urge you to revise your proposed rate schedule to minimize billing increases for those who conserve and shift your cost recovery focus to those who use more. The 75%-37% imbalance between Tiers 1 & 2 should be reversed.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
