The Beaumont-Cherry Valley Water District Board of Directors is dedicated to providing safe, reliable water that protect public health. The Board is also mindful of the value of controlling the cost of these services to you. The District’s continued analysis of its operational costs has kept the District on sound financial footing and has resulted in water rates that are among the lowest in Riverside County.
In 2010, the District undertook a Water Rate Study to evaluate the existing water 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 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.”
