"This Replenishment Assessment allows us to continue to develop a safe, affordable and reliable groundwater supply for our region and our future," said Albert Robles, WRD Board President. "WRD is very aware and sensitive to the region's economic state, and accordingly has worked very hard to minimize the increase by reducing its own costs by almost $3 Million dollars over the last two years to help offset increasing water costs to WRD." Robles added, "Ratepayers have made it clear that they support the need for a local sustainable groundwater source, and this Replenishment Assessment allows us to continue providing the best service to our customers and will help us build a local sustainable, long-term solution for the water needs of those in our Service Area."
The Water Replenishment District of Southern California is the regional groundwater management agency that protects and preserves the quantity and quality of groundwater for two of the most utilized urban basins in the State of California.
