Valencia Water Co. will raise rates by 30% in 1995 because of earthquake repairs and increased operating costs, a move that surprised many residents who said Thursday they had no idea the increase was being considered. About one-third of the increase is needed to repair items such as three tanks, with a total capacity of 2 million gallons, that ruptured in the Jan. 17 Northridge earthquake, said Bob Diprimio, managing director of the water agency.
