Raw Water

Current Rate: $1,747.63 per acre foot of raw water. Customers of raw water would be the Diablo Grande golf courses, Vineyards, and Construction.

Treated Water

Customers of treated water are the residences, commercial and any other users that have the facilities to accept treated water within the service boundary of the District.

Commercial users within the WHWD service boundary are non-residential users that have the facilities to accept treated water. Examples of these are: Diablo Grande Homeowners Association and Diablo Grande Golf and Country Club.

The WHWD pricing system is made up of two elements: a fixed monthly service charge and a tiered volume charge. The fixed monthly charge is collected whether the customer uses water or not during the period billed. The fixed monthly charges exclude any water. The tiered volume charge is set for every 750 gallons of water.

Residential Users Current Rate: $144.99 per month + the following tiered volume charge structure:

1 unit = 750 gallons
Tier 1: 0 — 6 units; $1.88/unit
Tier 2: 6+ — 13 units; $2.57/unit
Tier 3: 13+ — 20 units; $3.21/unit
