Northwest community battling potential doubling of water bill

Posted: Updated:

A northwest community neighborhood is battling a water company on a mission to double their water bills. Goodman Water provides water to about 650 homes in the Eagle Crest Ranch community.

It's a necessity, but a necessity residents say shouldn't put a strain on their wallets.

It would be a 53% increase for residents, and it comes just three years after a 122% increase in rates. Not to mention, they pay a lot more than those in neighboring communities supplied by Tucson water.
