Pass-Through Charges

CVWD uses pass-through rates and charges to recover costs that are imposed by other government agencies that make decisions and adjustments to these rates independently.  These other government agencies are the Inland Empire Utilities Agency (IEUA) and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD).  The various wholesale water and sewer services that CVWD must purchase from the IEUA and MWD are described below and include the related pass-through rates that are charged to customers.

IEUA Fixed Meter Charge Pass-Through
This rate is a flat monthly charge that is based on the size of each customer’s water meter.  It is designed to recover charges paid by CVWD to the IEUA in connection with imported water for Readiness to Serve, Capacity, and TYRA capital costs.  This rate will be adjusted whenever the IEUA approves changes to charges imposed on CVWD in future years.  The IEUA Fixed Charge Pass-Through monthly rates for each meter size are as follows:
