Background on Prop 218 Rate Increase

The District has already made substantial investments to improve its aging facilities, but even greater investments are now needed.

Though the District’s operation, maintenance and repair programs have been very effective, we have wrung every ounce of value out of our sewer collection, treatment and recycling system, and now must begin an extensive facility upgrade and replacement program.

The Board of Directors reviewed the Sewer Rate Methodology during 2014.  A full copy of the final report is available here (pdf).  An update of the study was prepared during 2015.  A copy of the technical memorandum is available here for review.

During 2015, the Board is considering a 5 year rate increase that will take effect July 1, 2015.  A public workshop was held on March 12, 2015 to discuss the planned capital improvement projects and projected rate increase.  See the handouts for that meeting by clicking here.
