DESERT WATER AGENCY w/ Xochitl Pena and Melinda Weinrich re: 1200 S. Gene Autry Tr., Palm Springs, CA. 92262.
– INTRODUCTION of Melinda.
– REPORT that DWA will be hosting a couple of RATE workshops this month because as a public service company they are not allowed to make a profit, so an independent entity came in and showed that DWA is NOT charging enough to cover their costs.
– REPORT that these workshops will explain why there will be a rate increase. i.e. because of inflation and also the need to replace lots of pipe.
– REPORT that DWA will be spending 8.5 million a year on pipe replacement.
– REPORT that the public is invited to attend these workshops and ask questions.
– HOLD THE DATE; June 10 @ Cathedral City Senior Center. The first rate workshop was recorded and is on the DWA website to peruse.
– DISCUSSION of the impact of the heat we are getting ready for on our grass and the increased water use we will experience. TIME TO CHECK YOUR SPRINKERS.
– QUESTIONS from “Joey Pals”
1. Is there a reduction in the water we will get from the Colorado River until 2026? (Yes, but not much of an impact here in the Coachella Valley. More for Arizona and Nevada will feel this as well. The Imperial Irrigation District will feel this as well.)
