Emergency Storage Program Policy Parameters

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Metropolitan administers several programs that provide financial assistance through incentive payments or discounted water rates to the member agencies for the development of local resources, conservation and replenishment of groundwater basins and surface water reservoirs. The program's primary purpose is to assist member agencies when they purchase Metropolitan supplies for the purpose of initially filling the emergency storage capacity in a newly constructed reservoir or tank. To achieve this, water purchased through the Emergency Storage Program would be sold at the Teir 1 cost. The Tier 2 Supply Rate would not apply, since this water is for emergency storage and is not intended for routine consumptive use. Metropolitan has approved policy parameters for the Emergency Storage Program.
