What is the Current RAC?

Within the service boundaries of CVWD there are three Areas of Benefit where RACs are imposed. The district sets a different rate for each Area of Benefit based on the costs of the specific replenishment projects and programs provided in each area.

The RAC is charged on a per acre-foot of pumped groundwater basis. The current RACs in each Area of Benefit are: 

  • Mission Creek Subbasin Area of Benefit = $135.52/acre-foot 
  • West Whitewater River Subbasin Area of Benefit = $143.80/acre-foot
  • East Whitewater River Subbasin Area of Benefit = $66.00/acre-foot
