Water Rate Study 2023

At the March 14, 2023 Garden Grove City Council meeting, the Public Works Department introduced a new water rate study during the City Council Study Session.

The presentation also reviewed water utility revenues and expenses, defined water system repairs and improvements, regulatory compliance, and Proposition 218 compliance. The study will provide a 5-year plan for future water rates.
