At Soquel Creek Water District, we are committed to providing our community with high-quality, reliable water services. Our region is addressing the critical overdraft of our groundwater basin and actively working to protect against the seawater intrusion that is occurring. As part of our ongoing effort to ensure the sustainability of our operations and infrastructure, we are conducting a comprehensive Water Rates Study.

What is a Water Rates Study? A water rates study is a public process led by an is led by an independent, third-party financial expert and includes an in-depth look at the District’s current revenues, operation and maintenance costs, capital investment plan, and reserves (essentially the District’s savings account). The study also makes recommendations for any needed rate adjustments for review and consideration by the District’s Board of Directors.

Rate Study Committee: We created an Ad Hoc Water Rates Advisory Committee to make this process more inclusive. Comprising 10 District customers and two Board Members who are all ratepayers, this committee has provided valuable input and recommendations.
