Water Supply and Rates

February 15, 2024

2024 WATER SUPPLY UPDATE

The Bureau of Reclamation has made its first official water supply declaration and based on current hydrologic conditions at Shasta, the initial projections show that 2024 will be a non-critical year for CCID and the Exchange Contractors.  The District’s Board of Directors has adopted a budget and water rate schedule based on a non-critical water supply under the Exchange Contract this year. However, there are continued uncertainties in the Bureau’s ability to operate the system, in particular because of potential restrictions to Delta export pumping.  Therefore, the quantities shown below for the tiered pricing levels are subject to change.  The District will provide updates immediately if conditions change. Reminder: Our Annual Grower Meeting will be on March 28, 2024 at 6:00 pm.

IN-DISTRICT WATER SALES

January through December

  1. A 3-tiered rate schedule will apply to water used from January 1 through December 31:
    Tier 1  – 0 – 3.20  acre-feet/gross acre – $18.00 /acre-foot
    Tier 2  – 3.21 – 3.70 acre-feet/gross acre (CCID Well Water) – $61.00 /acre-foot
    Tier 3  – Greater than 3.70 acre-feet/gross acre (Purchased Water) – $110.00 /acre-foot
  2. The per-acre quantities above represent how much water will be available, if needed, but the amounts are not guaranteed.  The actual amount of water available is subject to the Bureau’s ability to deliver water to us, and limitations in the Exchange Contract.

DEVELOPED WATER – CLASS II LANDS

Developed water for Class II lands will also be subject to tiered pricing from January 1 through December 31.  The first 3.2 a.f. per net acre will be charged $61.00 per a.f. on an “if and when available” basis.  All usage in excess of 3.2 a.f. per net acre during this period will be billed at $110.00 per a.f.

MUNICIPAL AND INDUSTRIAL WATER

Municipal and Industrial (M&I) water will be available to those municipalities contracting with CCID, at $75.00 per a.f.
