2019-2020 STATE LEGISLATIVE SESSION YEAR ONE ENDS

On September 13, the Legislature completed year one of the two-year 2019-2020 legislative session. We saw many proposals relating to water issues, including the reappearance of a proposed water tax. As you may recall, this tax would have added a monthly fee to most customers’ bills to pay for repairing failing water systems in other parts of the state.  Camrosa joined water agencies from across the state in what was ultimately a successful fight against this unfair burden on our customers; the Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Fund was established by SB 200, but its funding is not coming from a tax on your water bill.

Governor Newsom had until October 13 to sign or veto bills, and the Legislature will remain in recess until January 6, 2020. At that time, some of the bills that didn’t pass in year one may return. Camrosa will continue to weigh in through coalitions, commentary, testimony, and direct communication with our representatives on bills that would impact our operations and ratepayers.

For the fifth year, Camrosa has earned the prestigious Government Finance Officers Association Award of Excellence.

State leaders have found a better way than more taxes to fund fixes for the small number of areas in California without clean drinking water.

Camrosa Water District is soliciting proposals from audit firms for services as described in the Request For Proposal. We hope your firm will prepare a proposal in response to this RFP. If your firm will be preparing a proposal, it is requested that you notify the District to expect a response.

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.

    

Water Quality

Every year, Camrosa’s lab staff prepare our annual Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) that presents the findings of extensive water quality testing meant to ensure your water is safe and healthy to drink. And each year, Camrosa meets or exceeds all state and federal drinking water standards. You can obtain the 2018 report here, or by calling our office at (805) 388-0226 for a paper copy.
