Proposed Water Rate IncreasesThe City of Turlock relies entirely on groundwater for its drinking water supply. Unfortunately, the drinking water supply is declining, contaminant levels are increasing, and groundwater quality regulations have become more stringent.
The reliability and quality of our drinking water supply is vitally important to the health and well-being of Turlock residents; it is also critical to the economic vitality of the business community.
To reduce its reliance on groundwater, the City of Turlock has studied supplementing its groundwater supply with treated surface water from the Tuolumne River. Among its multiple benefits, a surface water supply will expand Turlock’s drinking water supply, improve water quality, enhance water supply reliability, and allow for groundwater recharge.
Public Hearing - December 12On Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at 6:00 PM, the City of Turlock will hold a public hearing in the Yosemite Community Room (Council Chambers) to consider the adoption of proposed water rate increases as described in the public notice.
