Non-Drought Rates

Effective January 1, 2022, CVWD enacted a new five-year rate structure. The increased rates will assist the District with meeting water 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.
