One thing that will drive up Everett water rates

Here's one other way the mill closure might affect you. The loss of Kimberly-Clark, one of the city's biggest wholesale industrial water customers, means ratepayers will have to make up the $1.5 million in lost revenue annually that Kimberly-Clark provided. As you may have already read today in print, the utilities department is already moving all customers paying a flat rate for a water onto a meter.
