San Antonio Water System customers will face new water and sewer rates this January after the City Council passed a series of increases this afternoon.

Council members debated the issue for more than 4 hours  before voting 10-0 in favor of the increases. District 6 Councilman Ray Lopez was absent from the vote.

The revenue from the increased rates will pay to replace aging sewer and water infrastructure and fund the controversial $3.4 billion Vista Ridge Pipeline that will pump water from Burleson and Milam counties.
