The District Board of Directors, management, and staff developed this Strategic Plan to provide a basis for meeting challenges and to advance the District to its next level of success. This strategic plan provides a roadmap that serves as an important tool with which to focus our energies and resources over the next five years. It will assist us in making the types of decisions that will continue the District's track record of progressive actions.
This District is required by California Emergency Management Administration and the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) to update its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan every five years. Monte Vista Water District's Board of Directors approved and adopted the updated 2011 Local Hazard Mitigation Plan on June 22, 2011 and receive FEMA final approval on July 1, 2011.
In order to develop a more comprehensive approach to reducing the effects of natural hazards, the District extends the opportunity to its customers and the public to comment on the continual updating process and submit any comments in consideration for the next update planned for July 1, 2016. For additional information on the 2011 Hazard Mitigation Plan, please call Jonathan R. Dizon at 909-267-2177.
The objective of this Recycled Water Master Plan is to identify potential recycled water customers in the District's service area, estimate the infrastructure required to supply recycled water to those sites, and develop a financially reasonable implementation plan to maximize recycled water usage throughout the District.
Monte Vista Water District engaged Carollo Engineers to conduct a comprehensive cost of service analysis of the District's current water and recycled water rates, and to recommend rates for the four year period from fiscal year ending 2016 to 2019.
To achieve this goal, Carollo's analysis was guided by standard industry best practices for cost of service analyses, as outlined by the American Water Works Association, as well as unique legal requirements for California and specific District Board policies. These factors established the cost of service analysis detailed in this report.
In November 2013 the San Bernardino Valley Water Conservation District submitted an application to expand its sphere of influence to include the territory of the Santa Ana River and its existing boundaries. As required by law, such a sphere of influence request requires that a service review under Government Code Section 56430 be conducted.
Since LAFCO had initiated the second cycle of service reviews for the Valley Region it was determined that the discussion of water conservation would be the first regional service review to be prepared. This review evaluates the activities related to water recharge and water conservation education in the Valley Region.
On August 13, 2000, Governor Gray Davis signed into law AB 2928, The Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000. The purpose of the legislation was to enact reforms to local government reorganization law, address orderly growth and resource protection, enhance local government coordination and efficiency, and increase public interest and involvement in government. A provision in the statute requires the Local Area Formation Commission of each county to update spheres of influence and service reviews at least once every five years to determine local government service needs and adequacy (Government Code Sections 56425 and 56430).
In late 2013, LAFCO initiated the second cycle of service reviews by requesting "Fiscal Indicators" data from local agencies, which the District provided. On March 26, 2015, LAFCO submitted information requests to wholesale, retail, and recycled water agencies in the West Valley area, including the District. The District submitted this Service Review Report in response to LAFCO's information request.

The District is required to submit an Urban Water Management Plan to the California Department of Water Resources every five years. The plan demonstrates that the District has surplus supplies available to meet projected demands, even during multi-year droughts, for at least the next 25 years.
