    Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District Discusses Rate-Hike Proposal

    Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District officials introduced a rate-hike proposal they’re hoping to have approved by June, district officials said Wednesday. At the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District board meeting, district staffers pitched fee increases of approximately $17 per year over the next six years, said Dave Bruns, assistant head of financial management for the Sanitation Districts. The district, which provides wastewater and solid waste management throughout Los Angeles County, is being mandated by the state to lower amount of chloride, or salt, in water flowing downstream to Ventura County from local treatment plants. The cost of the new infrastructure necessary to remove the salt is expected to cost upward of $250 million, which is the reason behind the rate increase being discussed, Bruns said.
