Agency’s rising costs explained

GUEST OPINION /// Local water rates

A letter in the Aug. 1 Acorn mischaracterizes the reason for the increases in water rates for Triunfo Water and Sanitation District in Oak Park.

The writer pointed to an almost doubling of the water meter charge in three years from around $15 to almost $30. This fixed monthly rate was increased based on Triunfo board’s decision to stabilize rates over the long term.

Water system operational and administration costs (fixed costs) stay much the same no matter the quantity of water used.
