Sewer rates in Central Contra Costa County will go up this year by $20 for residents of Concord and Clayton and $30 for those elsewhere, if proposed rate increases are approved.

Sewer fees are charged on residents’ property tax bills, and changes would take effect in the 2011-12 fiscal year, which starts July 1.

Concord will hold a public hearing on its proposed increase June 7; the sanitary district will hold its hearing June 2.

Concord owns its own sewer infrastructure, and Clayton contracts with Concord. The Central Contra Costa Sanitary District serves most areas of Alamo, Danville, Lafayette, Martinez, Moraga, Orinda, Pleasant Hill, San Ramon and Walnut Creek.
