UCAN, the not-for-profit Utility Consumers’ Action Network,
is protesting unfair water rate hikes from S.P.U.D., the
San Diego Public Utilities Department.
Fed up with high water rates? SHOW CITY HALL that something is rotten at SPUD! Join us at City Hall on Monday, January 24 to express your outrage over our ridiculous water and sewer rates and a proposal to raise YOUR rates again! We are asking victims of SPUD, (the San Diego Public Utilities Department) to bring a signed potato to the hearings. And if you can't make it, we'll bring one for you! Just click on the rotten spud to "Sponsor a Spud" with your brief personal message.
Is your troublesome experience with the water department's customer service line excluding you from participating in their survey?
Okay San Diego water customers! The time has come! Have you had it with the never ending water rate increases? Do you want your voice to make a difference? Well then pay close attention to every piece of mail you receive in early December. The City has decided to deliver an early holiday “gift.”
After more than two years of litigation, the City and UCAN's Executive Director agreed to a settlement that would return about $40 million to overcharged residential customers and, perhaps more importantly, allow for the creation of independent oversight of City water and sewer operations.
