Santa Fe Prepares To Launch New Cost Of Service Study

The Santa Fe Irrigation District (SFID) is embarking on a new cost of service study, which will analyze the district’s costs and revenue needs for the next three years, paving the way for potential rate increases. The district, which supplies water to customers in Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe and Fairbanks Ranch, generally commissions such a study every three years, which then allows the agency to establish a three-year rate plan, said Michael Bardin, Santa Fe’s general manager.
