(Tahoe Vista, Calif.) Tuesday, April 16, 2024 – Last week during their regular meeting, the Board of Directors of the North Tahoe Public Utility District (NTPUD) approved a new Rate Relief Program focused on providing water and wastewater rate assistance to income-qualified NTPUD residents.

The Rate Relief Program will provide a monthly credit of $30 off a combined water and wastewater bill and $15 off a wastewater only bill for income-qualified customers. The Program will be available for residential wastewater accounts, and single family residential and multifamily residential water accounts.

“Access to clean drinking water and responsible wastewater disposal is a basic daily human need and a direct connection to a healthy life,” said Sarah Coolidge, NTPUD Board President. “We (NTPUD) are committed to providing these essential services to every member of our community. This new program is in direct alignment with our vision as a district – that North Lake Tahoe is a vibrant and healthy community where we optimize our resources for the greater good and protect our environment for generations to come.”

The NTPUD Board of Directors will allocate $150,000 to support the Program in Fiscal Year 2024/2025 (July 2024 through June 2025). The Program will operate on a first-come, first-served model and will be limited to the annual funding available.

The program will launch on July 1, 2024, and applications will be available on the NTPUD’s website and in person at the District’s Office in Tahoe Vista, 875 National Avenue.

To be eligible for the Program, NTPUD residents must maintain their primary residence within the District and also be actively enrolled in the Liberty Utilities CARES program at the same address as their NTPUD water and/or wastewater services.

The Program will also allow local renters and tenants who are non-account holders with the NTPUD to apply and encourages those who are interested to discuss the Program benefits with their landlord(s).
