CCWD Rate Increase Protest Letter ~ Copperopolis Resident

Copperopolis, CA...I have made up a protest letter for CCWD customers to oppose the rate changes. All the customer has to do is fill in the blanks about their property and mail it in. Click Here for a PDF or Click The Image Below!

This is critical!!! Please, please do this if you are a CCWD customer.
A reasonable rate increase is one thing, this is way, way too much! These proposed rates need to be negotiated DOWN!

    Good luck with that. CCWD is going to increase the rates and your letter of protest is a waste of time.

      FYI, reliable sources have stated all the employees at ccwd make as much or more in retirement than when working! This increase will “guarantee” their pensions are paid for in advance. Better get the word out and at least send this letter in! What happened to the recent grant given by our state????

You should have attended community meetings, asked questions and made your voice heard. Too little, too late. The water district has increasing expenses and infrastructure costs that must be met.

      It's a false economy to think living in more rural America means a lower cost of living across the board. Costs more to deliver some items like food. The infrastructure for water is simply not what it is in more developed areas and must be continually updated.

      I hate the increase but you know what? We have an ancient water delivery system, left over from decades ago.

    ^Exactly and some of these homeowners think that CCWD probably shreds the protest letters so they have a special drop off and they will hand deliver these letters to CCWD. That is such as bunch of crap. Just pay the increase and STFU!

If you are concerned about the water bill going up maybe you should have though about that when you were drinking and smoking pot instead of getting a real JOB and being able to pay your BILLS!!!

    You don't know that. Could very well be a senior citizen on a fixed income. This is more about the middle class struggling more and more as the truly wealthy get richer.

Do you realize in five years the base fees will be double? Who wants your bi monthly bill $600+ and then add your water you use to that? Seriously, people wake up!

    Well, it isn't going to be $600 in 5 years. Maybe for huge lots, agriculture, or a business but not your average household. Or is that including sewer? Not everyone in this county has sewer. For the average household on septic, it will be $245 and change, which is more than double the current $120 and change. The usage cost is also increasing over the 5 years.

    CCWD says the increase is once a year. But I noticed that CCWD makes an increase two billing periods a year.

      It looks like the increase will be at the beginning of every fiscal year. Also, usually Boards have authority to choose to not raise rates every year if finances can accommodate it. Water and wastewater is expensive. Especially in the rural mountains. Unfortunately there is a cost to living in a beautiful place.

The $600 plus is for base fees for water and sewer. Someone needs to read the charts.

    Is there a county body that oversees CCWD?
