Over the past decade, CCWD has been working to reduce reliance on rate revenues and diversify by generating new non-rate revenues. This diversified income stream of non-rate revenues includes grants, investment earnings, developer contributions for new infrastructure, and other non-operating revenues like livestock grazing, lease agreements, and easements. While each year is different, this non-rate revenue ranges between 20% and 25% of the projected revenues each year.
CCWD has an active grants program where we constantly seek outside funding sources to offset rate-funded costs and has been successful in acquiring over $100 million in State and Federal funds in the last 20 years. Additionally, the Los Vaqueros Reservoir Expansion Phase 2 has the potential to generate new revenue streams from partner agencies.
