Plainview planning to raise water rates

PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) -

While Lubbock is making plans to conserve water until the Lake Allen Henry pipeline comes online, the City of Plainview is also looking for ways to save water.

Yesterday, the Plainview city council held their first reading to approve a change in their water rate structure.

Right now the city is on a two-rate structure, charging $1.70 per every thousand gallons used and $1.95 once they go over 25,000 gallons used.

They want to move to a four-rate structure.

Under that new structure, citizens would be charged $1.70 for every 10,000 gallons used.

$2 once when they reach 11,000 to 25,000 gallons.

$2.40 for every 26,000 to 50,000 gallons used.

And $2.90 for everything over 51,000 gallons.

The council will have a second reading over the changes at the end of the month.

If approved, the new structure will go into effect on March 1st.
