Notice of Public Hearing May 12, 2015
The Board of Directors will be reviewing the 2015/2016 Operating Budgets and
Ordinance 2014-01 water rates, the public is invited and encouraged to attend. The
meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 at 6:00pm.
At the last Board of Directors Meeting the Board Adopted Resolution 2015-11
to enter into a contract with McConnell Foundation to purchase 150 acre feet of water at a substantially higher price than we normally pay for water. This is due to the
Bureau of Reclamation who has cut our water allocations back 75% of normal use.
The Board of Directors has determined that the district cannot afford to absorb
the additional water costs because of the water shortages. Therefore the Board will
be looking at implementing a water shortage cost recovery of 5.00 per month to
each of our 676 customer. This cost recovery will only be in effect long enough to
recover the increased costs. This, along with our wells, will allow the district to
provide water to our customers during the water allocation cutbacks. This Resolution is expected to be adopted at the next Board of Directors Meeting on May 12,
2015 and will effect your July 1, 2015 water bill. The District is still currently under Stage 1: Voluntary 25% Water Reduction, a free hose nozzle is available at the
district office. (one per household please)
The current elevation of the lake is 993.2 feet above sea level. When Shasta
Lake is full, the elevation of the water surface is 1067 feet above sea level.

Due to drought conditions the District will be increasing our well water production. The district’s well water contains concentrations of CO2(Air) that
does occur naturally, however it makes your tap water appear cloudy. The
CO2 will come to the surface and dissipate after a few minutes. There are also
high calcium deposits or (hard water) which also occur naturally from our
wells. Hard water is not harmful to your health but you may notice spotting on

your dishes and glasses when they dry. The district will continue to produce

well water blended with surface water from the lake, until water allocations
from the Bureau return to normal.
