SAN DIEGO COUNTY WATER AUTHORITY
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Notice is hereby given that the Board of Directors of the San Diego County Water Authority Administrative and Finance Committee will hold a public hearing at June 26, 2008, at 9:00 a.m., at its offices located at 4677 Overland Avenue, San Diego, CA 92123.
The purpose of the hearing will be:
A. To hear objections, protests or comments from the public about its Resolution No. 2008-06 which proposes continuing a water standby availability charge of $10 per acre or per parcel, whichever is greater, on all land lying within the boundaries of the Authority for Fiscal Year 2008-2009, which charge is a continuation of the standby availability charge in the amount fixed and levied prior to November 6, 1996, and annually each year thereafter.
B. To hear objections, protests or comments from the public about its proposed water rates and charges consisting of the following: Infrastructure Access Charge.
The Infrastructure Access Charge (IAC) was adopted in June 1998 as an additional source of fixed revenue to improve coverage of the Authority's projected fixed expenditures. The IAC is levied on all retail water meters within the Authority's service area. Customer Service Charge.
The Customer Service Charge is set to recover costs that are necessary to support the functioning of the Authority, to develop policies and implement programs that benefit the region as a whole. The Customer Service Charge will be allocated among the member agencies on the basis of each agency's three-year rolling average of all deliveries (including all users, member agencies and third-party wheeling throughput). Storage Charge.
The Storage Charge is set to recover costs associated with the Emergency Storage Program. The Storage Charge is based on all non-agricultural water deliveries and will be allocated among the member agencies using a pro rata share of each agency's three-year rolling average deliveries (including all users, member agencies and third-party wheeling throughput). Transportation Rate.
The Transportation Rate is a uniform rate set to recover capital, operating and maintenance costs of the Authority's aqueduct system including all facilities used to physically transport the water to member agency meters. The Transportation Rate is charged to each acre-foot of water delivered by the Authority as it occurs. All users, member agencies and third-party wheelers will pay the Transportation Rate. Melded Untreated M&I Supply Rate.
The Melded Untreated Municipal and Industrial Supply Rate will be set to recover the costs of purchasing Tier 1 water from MWD, water purchases from IID, and may include other costs specifically associated with the acquisition of the IID supply source, cost recovery for supply costs previously incurred but not charged, etc. Melded M&I Treatment Rate.
The Melded Municipal and Industrial Treatment Rate will be set to recover the costs of treating water for the Water Authority and may include costs of purchasing treated water from MWD, and the Levy and Olivenhain treatment plants and may recover certain other costs associated with the delivery of treated water. Replenishment Rate.
For CY 2009, the untreated replenishment water rate will increase from its current level of $258/AF to $294/AF. The treated replenishment water rate will increase from its current level of $390/AF to $436/AF, reflecting MWD's increasing treatment costs. Agricultural Water Rate.
For CY 2009, the untreated agricultural water rate will increase from its current level of $261/AF to $322/AF. The treated agricultural water rate will increase from $394/AF to $465/AF, consistent with the increase in treatment costs. Capacity Reservation Charge.
For CY 2009,
the Capacity Reservation Charge is $6,800 per cubic foot second (cfs) of maximum daily flow requested by a MWD member agency. The Capacity Reservation Charge is a fixed charge levied on an agency's maximum daily flows over the three previous fiscal years. It recovers the cost of providing peak capacity within the distribution system, and is designed to encourage member agencies to shift demands and avoid placing large daily peaks on the MWD system during the summer months. Daily flow measured between May 1 and September 30 for purposes of billing the Capacity Reservation Charge will include deliveries (except long-term seasonal storage deliveries) made by MWD to a member agency or member agency customer including water transfers, exchanges and agricultural deliveries. As part of a separate surface storage operating agreement to manage seasonal peaking, the Authority is expected to reserve its full available capacity. The Capacity Reservation Charge will be set at $8,812,800. The Authority's Board has directed that the Capacity Reservation Charge will be recovered proportionally based on a five-year rolling average of member agency flows during coincident peak weeks. Readiness-to-Serve Charge.
MWD's Readiness-to-Serve Charge differs from the other MWD charges in that it is set on a Fiscal Year basis. The total Readiness-to-Serve Charge will increase from its current level of $82 million to $92 million in Fiscal Year 2008-2009. The Authority's share is set at $23,530,263. After credits from the MWD Standby Charge, and administrative costs, the net Authority share is $10,865,652. MWD's Readiness-to-Serve Charge will recover costs associated with standby and peak conveyance capacity and system emergency storage capacity. The Readiness-to-Serve Charge will be allocated among MWD member agencies on the basis of each agency's ten-year rolling average of firm demands (including water transfers and exchanges conveyed through system capacity). This allocation will be revised each year. Revenues equal to the amount of Standby Charges will continue to be credited against the member agency's Readiness-to-Serve Charge obligation unless a change is requested by the member agency. The Board has directed that the Authority's Readiness-to-Serve Charge will be passed through proportionally to member agencies on the basis of each agency's ten-year rolling average of firm demands (including water transfers and exchanges conveyed through system capacity).
Passed, approved and adopted on May 22, 2008 by the following vote: AYES: Arant, Barrett, Bond, Brammell, Craver, Croucher, Dailey, Ferguson, Hilliker, Hogan, Johnson, Knutson, Lewis, Linden, Lizzul, Martin, McMillan, Morrison, Muir, Parker, Petty, Pocklington, Price, Quist, Saunders, Smith, Steiner, Thompson, Tu, Watton, H. Williams, and K. Williams and Wornham. NOES: none; ABSTAIN: none; Directors absent were Bowersox (p)and Lewinger (p).
