Biennial California-Nevada Water Rate Survey

Biennial California-Nevada Water Rate Survey

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.
