WATER SUPPLY UPDATE

On May 27, 2020 we received an updated forecast from DWR indicating that inflows to Shasta are just above the threshold for a non-critical year. An official update from the Bureau of Reclamation is expected next week. Given this information the District wanted to provide a timely update that effective immediately the updated tiered water pricing below, our Non-Critical schedule, will be in effect.

IN-DISTRICT WATER SALES

A 3-tiered schedule will apply to all water used from January 1 through October 31. Any Tier 1 water used in May will be charged at $17/acre-foot. Starting June 1, the Tier 1 cost will be reduced back down to $13/acre-foot.

Tier 1 – 0 – 3.2 acre-feet/gross acre – $13.00 /acre-foot

Tier 2 – 3.21 – 3.70 acre-feet/gross acre (CCID Well Water) – $40.00 /acre-foot

Tier 3 – Greater than 3.70 acre-feet/gross acre (Purchased Water) – $95.00 / acre-foot

Water in November and December will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis at $13/AF
