When you're slapped, you'll take it and like it, East Bay residents! The local water district just gave you a ten percent rate increase, unless you happen to be one of the prudent few who use less than one hundred gallons of water a day. According to the Chron, the rate increase is designed to force folks to cut back on their water useage, as well as resolve a $52 million budget deficit. So go turn off that irrigation system you set up in your back yard and plant some native plants, already!
