Key changes for non-residential customers include the elimination of commercial water allotments and the annual “true-up” process while implementing rates based on compliance or non-compliance with Rate Best Management Practices and outdoor watering habits.To implement the new rate design for its non-residential customers, California American Water needs survey information from more than 3,500 commercial, industrial and public authority customers. To date, less than 700 surveys have been returned. Non-residential customers who do not return surveys will be placed in the highest rate category. The non-residential Rate BMP surveys are due September 25. “These workshops are also an excellent opportunity for residential customers to learn about the new rates and for non-residential customers to get help filling out their Rate BMP surveys and turn them in,” said California American Water Monterey County District Director of Operations Eric Sabolsice.
