Council to look at DPU proposals

-A A +A

The Los Alamos County Council will take a close look at two Department of Public Utilities proposals at its Aug. 20 work session (7 p.m., Fire Station No. 3 White Rock).

The controversial San Juan Water Project, which would involve drilling wells in White Rock, is first up on the agenda.
DPU will also answer questions about a proposal to change the gas rate structure from a fixed rate-charge to a combination of fixed-rate for controllable expenditures and a variable rate for the actual cost of gas.

Water rates will be discussed at the Board of Public Utilities Aug. 21 meeting (5:30 p.m., room 110 of the municipal building).

The board will consider whether to create rates based on tiered and/or seasonal usage.

The agenda item was prompted by DPU’s new conservation plan. Tiered rates received the highest amount of support during public hearings as a conservation measure.
