Water Fee May Take Place

Sonora, CA– California residents may be looking at a $3-per-month water fee in the coming years.

The fee would be charged to every household to help pay for improving the state´s water system. The fee was dropped from legislative debate last Thursday but picked up again on Friday.

Supporters say the money is a key component of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger´s $35 billion water works plan.

The hearing is scheduled for February 21st.
