Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
On June 8, 2021, CVWD adopted domestic water rate increases, as well as, changes in the rate structure, as proposed in Proposition 218. Notices to all affected customers of the domestic water fund were mailed on April 23, 2021 in compliance with the 45-day notice period. The basis for the rate increase follows industry-accepted cost-of service principles and complies with all requirements as stipulated by California law. The adopted rates do not exceed the proportional cost of service to each customer class, and have been developed through a collaborative effort with CVWD’s Board of Directors to balance operating capital needs with customer affordability. More information about the rates is available at Customers can use the 2022 New Bill Calculator available on that page and use a previous CVWD bill to enter water use information to see what the new bill would be.
