Survey Takers Requested

CVWD requires approximately $70 million in infrastructure improvements over the next 10 years. (See their website for details.)

Public input is requested on issuing water bonds to fund the necessary improvements. Issuing bonds will allow CVWD to keep annual water rate increases very close to the same as usual (from the historical 6% per year to 6.1% for the next 10-15 years), while allowing CVWC to upgrade its infrastructure, protect reserves and fund future projects and unanticipated needs. 

The community is invited to provide input on issuing the water bonds by completing the survey at
