The primary source of District revenue comes from agricultural water sales. Other significant revenue sources include Yolo County property tax distributions, bulk sales of municipal and industrial water, and proceeds from state and federal grants. Proceeds from sales of hydroelectric power generation are highly variable depending on water supplies. Please refer to the approved budgets and audited financial statements in the links above for specific information regarding District revenues and expenses.
Rates & Fees
Annual water rates are typically set by the District Board of Directors at their meeting in May. Water rates are highly dependent on water supply; a full water supply with ample carry-over storage results in the lowest water rates; very low water supplies results in higher water rates. For rates and fees for the current water year, please access the link below.
