Lake Oswego water rates have just been slightly lower than Portland and many residents are up in arms over the high costs despite conservation measures. Its particularly difficult for residents on fixed incomes. Recently the City went to a monthly billing cycle and many believe its a means to collect revenues more swiftly to pay for projects.
