To assist customers financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) is delaying its pending rate increase from January 1, 2021, to April 1, 2021.
“We know this is an incredibly difficult time for our community and our states,” said Andy Morris, president of EVMWD’s board of directors. “At EVMWD, we are committed to helping local residents financially by delaying this rate increase and using every possible means to reduce costs at the District. Providing affordable, reliable water 24/7 is our highest priority now and always,”
EVMWD Board of Directors voted 5-0 on Tuesday to further delay the scheduled rate increase. The previously approved increase was intended to cover the rising costs of imported water, energy, treatment, preventative maintenance, and capital improvement projects.
The decreased revenue resulting from the rate increase deferral will be offset by a combination of reduced operating expenditures and use of existing reserve balances.
Though the rate increase has been deferred and shutoffs are temporarily suspended, EVMWD is still billing for water service. Special payment arrangements and financial assistance, including the Rate Assistance for Residents of Elsinore Valley (RARE) program, are available to help individuals who are facing financial hardship.
