COUNTY WATER RATES:
Water finds its own level and so do water rates. The average residential monthly water bill in Bay Point would decrease from $61 to $56 based on usage of about 200 gallons a day if the state Public Utilities Commission acts on a proposed rate reduction for Golden State Water Co.
Here are some examples of average residential monthly rates for other water providers serving Contra Costa County based on that same household usage of 200 a gallons a day:
n City of Pittsburg Water Department $61.18
n Diablo Water District (serves Oakley residents): $32.13
