The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power commission unanimously approved new water rates Tuesday that will penalize residents if they don't cut water use by 15%. Many low-income users should not see a rise in rates, while some homeowners with large lots who don't conserve can expect bills to jump $11 a month, according to the DWP. The rates will go into effect June 1 unless the City Council blocks the move. Customers will have to use less water to stay within a base rate. If they are already well within that range -- as many low-income customers are -- their bills shouldn't rise, officials said.

Although the breaks would benefit many residents in the San Fernando Valley, representatives of Valley homeowners spoke out against the new formula, saying it does not provide enough relief to water-thirsty Valley residents.
