CVWD is in Stage 1: Encouraging Water Use Efficiency and a non-drought rate schedule.
Effective July 1, 2015, CVWD enacted a new four-year rate structure. The increased rates will assist the District in meeting water quality regulatory requirements, state drought mandates, recover increasing expenses, meet bonded debt covenants, and improve existing and build new infrastructure to ensure an adequate water supply.
The tiered rate structure reflects that range of costs for various water supplies that CVWD utilizes. The four-tiered structure charges customers for water use in each successive tier.
