LAS VEGAS — Southern Nevada water officials are raising water rates.
The Las Vegas Water District has approved a new rate structure that increases rates an average of 23 percent.
The higher rates will apply to water used this month, but will show up on bills beginning in May.
District officials say many residential water users can expect to pay about $2.50 more per month.
They say the increase is designed to affect high-volume users most and is an attempt to curb consumption during a drought.
Depending on how customers react, the rate increase is expected to generate about $65 million a year for the water district.
