    Santa Clarita Valley Sewer Officials OK Rate Hike

    Santa Clarita Valley sewer officials approved a rate hike for local ratepayers Monday as what officials called the most “cost-effective solution” to solve a state-mandated chloride limit. The state’s Regional Water Quality Control Board set a limit for the amount of chloride, or salt, that can be in the water sent from local treatment plants to downstream users in Ventura County. “Theres nothing here that I’m comfortable with, but I will say this -- there is no choice,” said Santa Clarita Mayor Laurene Weste, who holds one of three spots on the county board that approved the rate hike, at Monday's hearing. “There is no choice but to find a way to get the lowest cost to the ratepayer.”
