PID Customer - 2017
In the wake of recent failure of the Oroville Dam Spillway, the Division of Safety of Dams (California Department of Water Resources) is requiring owners of high hazard dams to conduct a comprehensive study of their spillways. PID has two spillways affected by this requirement: one each at Paradise Lake and Magalia Reservoir. Following the detailed analysis, PID will be required to make any required spillway repairs/upgrades which are found necessary.
PID customers will see an increase in their February water bill; the water district’s rates went up as of Jan. 1, 2018. While a larger increase was approved in 2016, the board voted last month to delay the full increase until 2019, implementing only a portion of the approved increase in 2018. For the average PID customer, the rates increased by 11%—less than the 18% increase permitted. The average PID household uses about 14 HCF units monthly, meaning the average residential bill for water plus the total service charge was $56.02 in 2017. In 2018, that total will be $61.72.
