Alpaugh Water Fee Hike

August 13, 2008 10:26:24 AM PDT
People in Alpaugh will have to pay an extra $10 dollars a month for water they can't even drink. At a meeting earlier this summer, dozens of people protested the water fee hike. But the Joint Powers Authority Board voted Tuesday night to increase the water rate.

Alpaugh customers currently pay $45 dollars a month for water. Starting September first, that will increase to $55 dollars a month.

Many people are upset about the fee hike. They said the water has dangerously high levels of arsenic.
