2017-18 STATE LEGISLATIVE SESSION ENDS

A very busy legislative session has finally come to end as of September 30. The good news is that the proposed water tax failed at the last minute, protecting our ratepayers from higher monthly bills. Unfortunately, the Governor did sign SB 998, which prescribes a system for water agencies to shut off service to customers who don’t pay their bills, and could mean that on-time ratepayers are subsidizing late or non-paying customers. We don’t think that’s fair, and worked hard to oppose it. With a puzzling veto message, the Governor vetoed AB 2050, the Small System Authority Act, which would have helped communities with failing water systems to consolidate with successful agencies to help ensure the delivery of clean water on a long-term basis. He also signed SB 1422 (Portantino), which will require the State Water Resources Control Board to adopt a definition of “microplastics”  in drinking water, and to develop a methodology for detecting and reporting them. On the conservation front, things are moving along with the implementation phase of the “Conservation as a Way of Life” bills, AB 1668 and SB 606. Camrosa will continue to remain engaged with this long-term process to ensure the least impact on our district and customers, and that we preserve local control and management of our water resources.

Board Meetings

A five-member Board of Directors sets policy within the Camrosa service area. Directors are elected to four- year staggered terms, with elections held in odd-numbered years. Each member of the Board is elected at-large but represents a specific Division within the District. Meet our current Board, virtually.

The Board schedule is typically two meetings per month on Thursday evenings at our district office. Board agendas indicate what items will be heard; proceedings of past meetings are also available. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.

And each year, Camrosa meets or exceeds all state and federal drinking water standards. You can obtain the 2017 report online, or by calling our office for a paper copy.
