CCWD Notifying Customers of Proposed Water, Sewer Rate Increases

San Andreas, CA...After more than a year of in-depth analysis and discussion, the Calaveras County Water District Board of Directors instructed staff to send written notifications to customers regarding proposed changes to rates for the District’s 13,000 water customers and 5,000 sewer customers (click here to read the notice). These notices are required by Proposition 2018 (Prop. 218), which is a constitutional amendment passed in 1996 that ensures public agencies notify customers before rates or fees are changed. Prop. 218 also requires a 45-day period between the mailing of the notices and the date of a final public hearing, at which time the new water and sewer rates will be voted on by CCWD Board members. CCWD’s public rate hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m. May 23, 2018, at the District’s headquarters at 120 Toma Court, San Andreas. All information regarding the proposed rate changes will be posted to

The CCWD Board of Directors. From left, Division 4 Director Russ Thomas, Division 5 Director Jeff Davidson, Division 1 Director Scott Ratterman, Division 2 Director Terry Strange and Division 3 Director Bertha Underhill.

Public Outreach

During the months of April and May, the District will continue its public outreach efforts regarding rates, which have been ongoing since summer 2017. These include meeting with community leaders, working with local media providers, speaking to community groups, posting flyers throughout the county, posting information on the District’s website and social media accounts and answering questions via phone and in person in the Customer Service Department. Staff will also make presentations about the proposed rate changes at town hall meetings throughout the county. These meetings have been planned in the evenings to ensure community members can attend after work.
