CITY OF LOS ANGELES

MAYOR'S BLUE RIBBON COMMITTEE
ON WATER RATES




Honorable Tom Bradley June 29, 1992
Mayor
City Hall
Los Angeles, CA 90012

Mayor Bradley:

It is our privilege to present the report of the Mayor's Blue ribbon
Committee on Water Rates.

Our Committee began its work in the summer of 1991. We have
conducted a comprehensive study of water rate policy and imple-
mentation. we examined the methodologies employed by cities such as
Phoenix, Denver, and Seattle. This report documents our findings and
makes recommendations for the implementation of a water rate structure
based on marginal cost.

We have completed our report after conducting an extensive study of the
current rate structure and receiving public opinion and input at the
consumer level. We would not have been able to accomplish our task
without the full support of the Mayor's office, CLA, CAO, and the
Department of Water and Power. The extraordinary volunteer efforts of
my fellow Committee members are to be commended, as their joint
participation in producing the report is sincerely appreciated.

We present our recommendations for your review and consideration. It is
our belief that if the Committee's recommendations are adopted, they
will become the foundation for an equitable strategy to link water rates
and conservation and water quality. Thereafter, the Department of Water
and Power should be able to serve the needs of its customers in a
manner that is cost effective, environmentally sensitive, and fair to all
customers.


Respectfully,


W. A ty Willoughby
Chairman
