The District is in the process of completing a comprehensive review of its Rules and Regulations and rate structure. The District is also evaluating its water portfolio to determine what water, if any, can be made available to new customers beyond its existing commitments. The answer to this question is dependent, in part, on how Douglas County proceeds with respect to the Sterling Ranch water appeal (the “Water Appeal”). The outcome of the Water Appeal will have a major impact on the District’s water supply and therefore its ability to serve new customers. It is anticipated that these reviews will be completed late 2021. In the interim, the Dominion Water & Sanitation District has adopted a Resolution Regarding Conditions of Receiving Water Service.
Smart Water Use
Dominion is committed to smart water practices that ensure a sustainable water future for Northwest Douglas County.
We are responsibly managing our assets and are helping our users to do the same.
A. Master Meter Potable Water Only:
Wholesale water services provided by a master meter at a mutually agreed upon connecting point(s) to Dominion's water system. Infrastructure required to convey water from the Dominion connection point(s) to the Retail Provider's system would be at the Retail Provider's expense. It is assumed fire flow would be included for customers connecting to the Larry D. Moore Treatment Plant, but fire flow would not be guaranteed at other points of connection. The Retail Provider owns and is responsible for construction, operation, maintenance, and replacement of its water system. Dominion delivers water to the Retail Provider through master meters and bills the Retail Provider at the established wholesale water rate. The Retail Provider is responsible for reading the meters of its individual customers and for billing its individual customers according to rate schedules established by the Retail Provider.
B. Master Meter Nonpotable Water Only:
Dominion may deliver nonpotable water to a Retail Provider for Irrigation, Augmentation, Commercial Use, or other nonpotable purposes. Similar to the Master Meter Potable Water Only level of service, Dominion will deliver nonpotable water to the Retail Provider through one or more master meters. Dominion will bill the Retail Provider at the applicable nonpatable rate.
C. Master Meter Wastewater Only:
Wholesale wastewater services provided by a master meter at a mutually agreed upon collection point in Dominion's wastewater system. The Retail Provider conveys wastewater flows, at their own expense, to an agreed upon location in the Dominion System. Dominion bills the Retail Provider at the established wholesale sewer rate. The Retail Provider is responsible for reading the meter of its individual customers and for billing its individual customers according to rate schedules established by the Retail Provider.
D. Master Meter Water and Wastewater
Includes any combination of water services described above.
