Rate Structure Study
Why study and propose changes to the rate structure?
The District conducted the rate study as part of a periodic review to ensure all customers pay their fair share for the water services they receive. This is a comprehensive legal and financial evaluation process, as the rate structure establishes how costs are divided among 60,000+ customer accounts.
The primary factors for determining the proposed updates were fairness, affordability, understandability, and encouraging efficient water use while maintaining financial stability. Updates to the rate structure do not increase revenue for the District.
How we got here
The Board of Directors deliberated over the course of two years in order to present the proposed rate study changes. Below is all the associated documents and presentations.
