Water Resource Utilization Fee for All Service Areas - $0.50 per 1,000 gallons

In October 2012, the Board established a Water Resource Utilization Fee at 10 cents per 1,000 gallons, which became effective March 1, 2013 and applies to all Metro service areas. In October 2013, the Board raised this fee to 20 cents per 1,000 gallons. In September 2014, the Board raised the fee to 40 cents per 1,000 gallons. In May 2016, the Board raised the fee to 50 cents per 1,000 gallons. This fee provides funds to develop, design, and construct projects that will put to use the District's CAP water and effluent. Specifically, the Water Resources Utilization Fee helps fund the land acquisition and design activities for the CAP Recharge, Recovery and Delivery System, the CMID Recycled Water Project, and the 2016 wheeling agreement to deliver CAP water to Metro-Southwest. By using this Fee, the District avoids adding additional debt and reduces the financial impact of these initiatives.
