    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.”

    Valencia Water Company Offers Conservation Measures For Drought

    The Valencia Water Co. is offering customers a “personal drought report” in an effort to meet Gov. Jerry Brown’s water-reduction goals. VWC customers should expect to receive a computer analysis show how much water they would have to save in order to meet Brown’s call for conservation. “Our goal with this customized report is to give customers real numbers to work with in order to answer the governor’s call to save water,” said Keith Abercrombie, general manager for the Valencia Water Company. “We hope to show customers – in terms of actual gallons – what a 20 percent reduction really means.” For most single-family households, a 20-percent reduction means saving between 500 and 725 gallons a week.
