What is a "pass through" charge?

A "pass through" charge covers unforeseen increases in wholesale charges for imported water and groundwater management, which may be passed through to the customer as they occur. If the District finds it necessary to pass through unforeseen wholesale charge increases, customers will be informed of these additional charges in advance of the effective date, and each additional charge will be itemized on each bill.

There are currently no pass through charges being assessed to District customers.
