BUDGETS & FINANCIAL REPORTS

At SGCWD, we understand the importance of fiscal responsibility and the role it plays in our ability to continue providing dependable, high-quality water. We take planning seriously, including maintaining and upgrading our water system components and balancing costs of service with water rates.

As a special district, we legally cannot make a profit and can only charge for the actual cost of providing water.

DATA COLLECTION SOFTWARE REPORT

A variety of data is used by the District for customer service, finance and operations efforts for functions such as meter reading, backflow tracking, accounting, and billing.

The District, along with all California agencies, was mandated by Senate Bill 272 in 2016 to create a catalog of enterprise systems.

The Data Collection Software Report is made available here and updated with new information when warranted.

URBAN WATER MANAGEMENT PLAN

SGCWD, like other water providers, is required by the state to develop an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) and update it every five years. SGCWD most recently updated its plan in 2020.

According to the California Department of Water Resources (DWR), UWMPs for urban wáter supplies such as SGCWD must do the following:

Assess the reliability of water sources over a 20-year planning period

Describe demand management measures and water shortage contingency plans

Report progress toward meeting conservation targets

Discuss the use and planned use of recycled water

The plan is designed to ensure an adequate water supply now and for the future. It also addresses how SGCWD will respond to potential water shortage situations caused by drought, disasters or other factors.

AWARDS AND RECOGNITION

Association of California Water Agencies Joint Powers Insurance Authority (ACWA JPIA): President’s Special Recognition Award

SGCWD is proud to be commended for its dedication to employee safety with recognition from ACWA JPIA, our insurance provider, for our low number of workers’ compensation, property and liability claims filed between 2016 and 2019.

Keeping claims low reduces insurance rates for SGCWD and those savings are passed along to all District customers. The honor continues a tradition of excellence at SGCWD, which has received the ACWA JPIA President’s Special Recognition Award in each of the three categories since 2014.
