LIVERMORE — The Zone 7 Water Agency Board recently considered how rate adjustments could impact 81 agricultural users in the South Livermore Valley Plan. Board Vice President Sarah Palmer first raised the issue during a Sept. 1 board discussion about components that needed to be added to the untreated water bill. She referred to pleas from grape growers, who reported that water prices make a major impact on their business costs. The South Livermore Valley Plan was created in the 1980s with a goal of securing 5,000 acres for vineyards; today 2,300 acres are planted with wine vines.
