  • 22. Enhancing RegionalWater Supply Reliability TOTAL- 196,000 AF (90K Emergency + 100KCarryover + 6K Operational) SAN VICENTE 152,000 AF 2013 HODGES 20,000 AF 2010 OLIVENHAIN 24,000 AF 2004 25
  • 23.  Construction of first facilities began in 2000 Final phase complete in 2014 Costs spread out over several decades to minimize water rate impacts Provides 90,100 acre-feet of water storage for emergency use Environmental mitigation is included to make up for construction impacts 26
  • 24. San Diego County Water Authority
  • 25.  The amount of money at stake in the Water Authority’s rate lawsuit vs. MWD (over 45 years): $1.3 billion to $2.1 billion 28
  • 26.  In October 2003, Colorado River QSA is executed: ◦ Water Authority signs 45- to 75-year deal to buy 200,000 AF annually from the Imperial Irrigation District ◦ Water Authority agrees to line the All American and Coachella canals and receive 80,000 AF annually for 110 years ◦ Requires transportation rate from MWD to move supplies to San Diego through MWD’s system 29
  • 27.  MWD had to disaggregate its uniform water rate to develop a transportation charge for the Water Authority’s transfer supplies Facing a loss of water sales revenues due to the Water Authority’s supply diversification, MWD took vast majority of its water supply costs and misallocated them to its transportation charge to move the Water Authority’s IID and Canal Lining transfer supplies 30
  • 28. < 2003 2003> MWD System Costs New Rate Structure Misallocates Water SupplyUniform Costs to Transportation Charge Water Water Rate Supply Costs Water System Power Water MWD Must Supply Access Rate Stewardship Disaggregate Rate Rate Rate Its Costs Charged for Transportation Water Supply Costs MWD System Costs Charged for Purchase of MWD Water 31

  • 30.  MWD is required to place disputed payments made by the Water Authority into an escrow account ◦ By end of 2012, escrow balance will grow to approximately $78 million ◦ By the end of 2013, escrow balance will grow to approximately $135 million If the Water Authority wins the case, MWD must return the money to the Water Authority 33
