"None of those increases will make an impact right away," Presley said. "These adjustments will occur with time."
The district are facing 39 percent rate increase from Central Basin Municipal Water District, 23 percent in the Main San Gabriel Supra Footwear Uk Store
Basin Watermaster and 11 percent in the Water Replenishment District of Los angeles.
All were passed last week. In addition, Metropolitan Water District a month ago raised its rates by 7.5 percent.
All four agencies either sell water or charge for the pumping of underground water in either Southeast Los Angeles County or the San Gabriel Valley.

"We have to improve our outreach to our customers," said Art Aguilar, Central Basin Jeremy Scott Adidas Asap Rocky
general manager. "Even with the additional employees, we're still two below what we should determined was necessary to run the district."
The district also needs to raise pay, Aguilar said. "When you appear at salaries, Central Basin is third from the lowest," he said talking about a comparison of the districts that comprise Metropolitan Water District. "We need to remain competitive in terms of salaries."
Local officials disagreed using the Central Basin action.
