FAQ's:


  • What makes up our rate?  (Assuming we deliver 40,000 acre feet of water)


    -  Fixed Costs (Friant O&M, Exchange Contractor Water Costs, Water Legal Defense, Bond Service, etc.)  $43.18 Acre/Foot

    -  USBR cost of water $46.56 Acre/Foot

    -  Delivery (Admin., O&M) $41.96 Acre/Foot


  • Why is our rate higher than in the past?


​    - The amount of water we deliver impacts the rate of water more than anything else.  (The less water we can deliver, the higher the rate.)

    - USBR and Friant Water Authority costs have gone up.

    - District costs have stayed relatively stable over the last 10 years.

 

  • What factors have impacted the District's allocation from the USBR? 


    - The USBR decided to release water from Millerton to meet the demands of the Exchange Contractors, putting the security of our supply in jeopardy.

    - An apparent warming and drop in elevation for moisture patterns has negatively impacted the amount of water collected in watersheds.

    - A 1986 law suit required the District in 2010 to release 18% of it's water supply to restore the San Joaquin Salmon fishery.​  Settlement

 

  • What were the pro-rates for the last five years?








  • How will the District prepare for future variations in USBR water supply?  


    - The District began searching for and working with other agencies to find places to percolate wet year water supply.

    - We plan to develop groundwater banking.

    - We intend to find additional supplies.

    - We also plan to improve our supply foundation through legislation.
