Pico Rivera

Residents in the northern part of the city will have higher water bills beginning this month as a result of a 15% rate increase by the Pico Water District.

The increase means the average monthly water bill will be about $1.86 higher after Jan. 1, according to Hal Maupin, general manager of the district, which serves 21,000 homes here. Maupin said the increase was needed to raise $1.2 million to pay for replacing 39 miles of pipe.
