Water Rates and Budget Adopted for 2017
Changes in customer water rates become effective on January 1, 2017. The 2017 rates, charges and fees were adopted by the CHWD Board of Directors at a public hearing on Tuesday, November 15, 2016. The Operating Budget and Capital Improvement Budget for 2017 were also adopted at the meeting. Adoption took place following a Public Hearing where comments were received from customers in attendance at the meeting. Directors also considered letters protesting the proposed rate adjustments that were received from property owners in the District.
For a typical household account with a one-inch water meter, representing about 84% of CHWD’s accounts, the 2017 rates would result in an approximate $12.86 increase on the bi-monthly bill, or approximately $6.43 per month from the base rate.

District Financial Audit
An independent audit of the District’s financial records and practices is performed annually in compliance with CHWD Policy No. 6010. The audit is performed by an independent certified public accounting firm that reports directly to the District’s Board of Directors. We are pleased that the annual financial audit shows that the District’s financial records are in good shape, and its accounting practices conform with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. In some years, the Independent Auditor also prepares a Management Letter that provides comments on District internal controls and operations, with suggestions regarding matters identified as opportunities for strengthening internal controls and operating efficiency.
