Directors Set New Recycled Water Rates

Two Ramona Municipal Water District (RMWD) recycled water customers can expect to pay up to $1,013 per acre foot for recycled water, an increase from $35 per acre foot in their previous 10-year agreement. RMWD directors gave their unanimous approval during two separate votes at a special meeting Sept. 28 in which RMWD’s price for recycled water was set at a rate of $1,013 per acre foot for San Diego Country Estates Association (SDCEA) and Spangler Peak Ranch. However, SDCEA can access a $450 credit to lower the cost to $563 per acre foot and terms of the deal have not been finalized.
