Can I protest the proposed rates?

YES. Proposition 218 provides a process for record property owners who receive water and sewer services to protest rates proposed by water and sewer agencies. If a majority of property owners receiving services protest the rates, the District cannot implement the rates.

All protests must be in writing - protests submitted by email or other electronic means will not be accepted.  Written protests must include the following information:

  • A statement of opposition to proposed rates.
  • Address or Assessor’s Parcel Number (APN) of the parcel receiving water or sewer service.
  • Printed name and original signature of owner submitting the protest.


All protests must be delivered to the Board Secretary:
