Subject: Options for Implementation of a Statewide Low-Income Water Rate Assistance Program

Letter excerpt: 

The Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) appreciates the opportunity to provide comments regarding the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) draft AB 401 (Dodd, 2015) implementation report entitled Options for Implementation of a Statewide Low-Income Water Rate Assistance Program (Draft Report).

I. Stakeholder Engagement

Comment 1 – ACWA appreciates the State Water Board’s engagement with stakeholders in development of the Draft Report.

In addition to conducting a series of public meetings in 2017 and a very substantive Water Affordability Symposium on April 5, 2018, State Water Board staff held stakeholder meetings in August of 2017 and May of 2018. One or two State Water Board Members also attended the stakeholder meetings. ACWA appreciates this engagement with stakeholders by Board Members and staff which allowed for a real and in-depth dialogue about the pros and cons for different options on issues such as revenue collection and benefit distribution.
