Agencies Support the Water Conservation Rebate Tax Parity Act

Agencies Support the Water Conservation Rebate Tax Parity Act

Wednesday, November 22, 2017
Nearly 100 signatories joined the Alliance for Water Efficiency on letters to Congressman Jared Huffman and Senator Diane Feinstein in support of the Water Conservation Tax Parity Act (H.R 448 and S 1464 respectively.)

 
Public utilities in every state offer rebate programs to promote water conservation and storm water management, but the rebates they pay to homeowners are currently seen as taxable income to the recipient. This is in stark contrast to the treatment of similar energy efficiency rebates, which Congress declared non‐taxable in 1992 under Section 136 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Biennial California-Nevada Water Rate Survey

Biennial California-Nevada Water Rate Survey

Published on Friday, September 01, 2017

The 2017 biennial California-Nevada water rate survey will be conducted from August 9 through September 20. 

This year’s survey features an expanded partnership, with the California Data Collaborative (CaDC) joining Raftelis Financial Consultants (RFC) and the California-Nevada Section of AWWA.  The survey serves as a significant resource for its primary audience of utility managers, and the project team will implement new ways to make the survey as universal as possible, including more extensive outreach and a volunteer hackathon of water rates led by CaDC. 

The 2017 survey adds three questions about changes to rates and rate structures resulting from the severe drought.  Please click here for the survey and thank you for your participation.
