Camrosa is dedicated to providing safe, reliable and affordable water and sanitary services that protect public health. The District’s continued analysis of its operational costs has kept the District on sound financial footing, and has resulted in some of the lowest rates for water service in Ventura County.
In 2012, the District undertook a Water and Wastewater Rate Study to evaluate the existing water and sewer rates and to make projections for a five-year period. The broad objective of the Study was to determine the best way to adequately fund water and sewer utility operations and capital projects while keeping rates as affordable as possible. Included in the Study was the recommendation to consider the potable and non-potable systems as distinct and separate enterprises that must financially support themselves independent of one another. Statutory regulation requires that rates are established based on the cost of delivering services to each enterprise, otherwise known as the “cost of service.”
In April of 2013, the Board adopted a five-year rate schedule based on the Study. The District plans to undertake another rate study this year.
