Here is a summary of activities from the Feb. 23, 2021 meeting of the Coachella Valley Water District Board of Directors. The board:
- Agreed to receive and file the Cost of Service Study Report for Canal Rates that suggests Canal rate increases for Fiscal Year 2022 through 2026. Also authorized mailing Proposition 218 notices to affected customers by March 12, 2021, which is at least 45 days prior to a public hearing scheduled for April 27, 2021. Proposed rate increases to canal water service charges are necessary to ensure that operating revenues are sufficient to meet operating costs and maintain funds for capital improvements.
- Discussed additional rate modeling scenarios.
- Adopted revisions to regulations governing sanitation service that included definition and transparency updates and clarification of district practices, some required by state law. The board voted not to approve sections of the regulations regarding street sewer laterals pending further study.
