The Proposition 1 funds are via the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB). Grant projects going into construction may take up to 2-3 years.

On March 24th the public hearing for the proposed rate increase was held. The Clerk of the Board counted all of the protest ballots received and found there was not a majority protest. Per Proposition 218 requirements the rate increase was passed and a new water rate ordinance adopted. However, due to the COVID19 Pandemic, the rate increase will not go into effect until 30 days after the Local COVID19 Emergency is terminated. Until the Local COVID19 Emergency is over, water rates will remain at the current rate (see below).
