2022 Water Rate Study Information

November 9, 2022 

The City of Eureka (City) last performed a rate study for the water and sewer utilities in 2016 and implemented yearly rate increases for the five years, ending in 2021. Industry standards dictate that utility rates be review at least every five years to ensure that utility rates accurately reflect the cost of running these funds in a self-sufficient manner. The City retained NBS in 2022 to perform a rate study for both utilities, evaluate alternative rate structures, review how costs are allocated to customer classes, and address rate-related issues such as reduced water sales and changes in costs. Water and sewer connection fees were included in this study. This study has resulted in proposed rate increases largely due to the need to meet new regulatory requirement imposed by the state on the Elk River Regional Sewer Treatment Facility and requirements resulting from recent litigation.

The City Council will hold a Public Hearing on December 19, 2022 in the Council Chambers at Eureka City Hall regarding adoption of the proposed rates.

PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoffs

October 8, 2019 

The City of Eureka is preparing for the potential shutdown of PG&E power to the City of Eureka. County OES was notified on Tuesday morning that PG&E may activate Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) in Humboldt County due to extreme fire danger weather along the two main transmission lines into Humboldt County on Hwy 36 and Hwy 299. City of Eureka Public Safety and Public Works crews are ready to respond to the effects of the power outage.

The City of Eureka is ready to respond to the effects of the power outage; however, the decision to turn off the power and the speed at which it is restored is managed solely by PG&E. The utility is working on a solution to generate power locally at its King Salmon power plant that would help offset the effects of any shutoff.

The City of Eureka's EOC is activated and working with County OES and monitoring the situation with assistance from our PG&E liasion.
