SPUR Supports SB 222, A Framework for Statewide Water Affordability Assistance Program

Advocacy Letter

SB 222 would establish a first in the nation statewide Low-Income Water Rate Assistance Program to ensure that all Californians can access safe drinking water and wastewater services regardless of income. Water bill assistance will provide California a pathway to raise local revenue to adapt water infrastructure to the stresses of climate change without making water unaffordable for low-income customers.
