In February, 2011, the City adopted a five-year water plan to adjust municipal water rates on an annual basis for the period of 2011 through 2015. In accordance with the approved plan, municipal water rates will be adjusted by an overall average of approximately 4.4% in 2013. The rate change is the third year of the five year rate schedule adjustment.
The increase only applies to the area serviced by Torrance Municipal Water (TMW). For customers billed on a monthly basis, your water bill will reflect the rate adjustment effective with the February bill. For customers billed on a bi-montly basis, your water bill will reflect the adjustment effective with your March bill. Even with this adjustment, Torrance Municipal Water rates are expected to remain among the lowest in the area.
