CCWD Drought Management Program

CCWD has sent a notice to its treated and untreated water customers about the District's proposed Drought Management Program.

A Public Hearing on the program will be held April 1 at 6:30 p.m. in the CCWD Board Room located at 1331 Concord Ave. in Concord.

If the program is instituted, it will start on May 1.

CCWD will not be raising water rates as part of its drought program. However, the District is proposing to implement a penalty charge for customers who do not conserve. Customers who meet the conservation goals will save money since they are using less water.

The proposed penalty charge will be based on a sliding scale with a maximum charge of ten-times the quantity charge of the District’s adopted rates.

We've got a slide presentation that explains how the program will work, you can see it here as a PDF file.
