    • 1. Olivenhain Municipal Water District Water Supply & Drought Management Issues Leadership North County Alumni January 27, 2009
    • 2.
      • Whiskey is for drinking; water is for fighting over.“ – Mark Twain
    • 3. Don’t want to steal Dana’s thunder, but here is a hint at what she is going to tell you…
    • 4. OMWD Service Area
    • 5. CWA Supplies
    • 6. Anticipated Supplies
      • MWD water supply allocation in 2009 is likely
        • Shortages could be significant
      • A 15% cut from MWD, translates to a lessor cut from CWA, and then a lessor cut from OWMD.
        • We each have alternate supplies.
    • 7.  
    • 8. Local Agency Perspective
      • Each local agency has different supply portfolios
        • Recycled; Brackish Desal; Local Storage
      • We estimate 60-70% of water use is outside
        • IE – Plants and Grass
        • It takes 48” of rain to make grass green in a year
          • How much did SD County get last year??
    • 9. San Diego Rainfall by Calendar Year 1850 through 2007 2007 shown in red
    • 10. OMWD’s Drought Ordinance
      • Very similar to regional ordinance – focuses on outdoor use
      • Six water use restrictions
      • No new meters in Level 2 .
        • Voluntary demand off-set fee.
          • Identified five projects.
          • Calculate cost per acre foot of those projects.
          • Estimated $4K - $5K per EDU offset.
      • Remainder of ordinance follows lead of the regional model.
      • Allocations can come with a Level 2 declaration
        • We are in Level 1
      • Use existing employees for enforcement
    • 11.
      • Conservation Programs
        • Regional incentives
          • WBICS, Turf Replacement, nozzles, audits
        • Demonstration garden at HQ Site
        • Quail Botanical Gardens
        • Landscape Contest
      • Landscape Workshops
      • Conservation Ambassadors
        • Champions in the communities
        • Hardship request committee
      Outreach/Education – Focus on Outside Use and on Communication
    • 12. Outreach/Education
        • Customer Survey Results
      • 62% recognize urgency
      • 86% find OMWD credible
      • 51% need more detailed conservation information
      • 59% willing to make changes outdoors
      • Strong motivator: conserving now could prevent mandatory restrictions
    • 13. Conservation Pricing
      • Temporary water pricing applied to all imported water commodity rates based on drought level.
      • New rates at each stage of drought.
        • Provide economic incentive to conserve water
        • An effective tool to reduce customers “ discretionary” water use.
        • Achieve revenue neutral condition.
        • Utilize rate stabilization reserves to cover temporary budget shortfalls due to reduction in water sales.
        • Price Elasticity of Water – Rates how much higher to achieve reduction?
    • 14. Conservation Based Pricing
      • Follows OMWD drought ordinance
      • Chart shows 9% rate increase effective February 1 st and the conservation based pricing model.
      *NOTE: Conservation pricing will be in addition to penalties passed through to customers for exceeding SDCWA / MWD allocations.
    • 15. Residential Sample Bill Calculation A typical residential customer with ¾” size meter using 18 units of water
    • 16. Allocations
      • Can come with Level 2
      • Each agency different in their implementation
        • Some will look at past use
        • Others give budgets
        • OMWD will base on meter size so as to not penalize for past conservation
    • 17. New Emphasis on Diversification of Supply Recycled Water
      • Approximately 6% of current OMWD supply
        • Golf Courses
          • Fairbanks, Morgan Run, Crosby
          • Future – RSF Farms
        • Own and operate the 4S Ranch Water Reclamation Facility (1.6 mgd)
        • Partnerships currently with
          • City of SD
          • Vallecitos WD
        • Exploring future projects with
          • SFID/San Elijo JPA

        • Subscribed for 5,000 AF
        • IRWMP Grant-$2 million
      • 10% of water supply in 2011
      • Any agency that can go this route is now looking
      Diversification of Supply
    • 19. How does this effect North County
      • There will be less water and it will cost more
      • Hits at the same time as state budget/economic crisis
        • Potential loss of property tax revenues
      • Recycled Water exempt from restrictions
      • Potable water cutbacks will effect residents and businesses alike
      • This is not short term.
