California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Reimbursement Surcharge
A 1.44% surcharge is required to be added to all customers' bills, which is calculated on all amounts due and is forwarded to the Commission throughout the year.
State Revolving Fund (SRF) Surcharge
The monthly surcharge is specifically for the repayment of the State Revolving Fund for the Regional Intertie Project as authorized by Decision 08-05-032 as adjusted by Decision No. D. 14-02-034, dated February 27, 2014 as further amended on March 21, 2014. The monthly Surcharge Rates are subject to adjustment. All Lime Saddle customers who already paid the $5,000.00 Connection Fee are excluded from the SRF Surcharge; however, all active Lime Saddle connections are responsible for a proportionate share of the Phase I equity costs to be put into rates as of the conclusion of the project.
Other Services and Fees
Please see the back of your bill for additional information about other services and fees.
The initial service charge for customers applying for service, who have not been a customer of the district for at least 12 months, is a multiple of the Monthly Service Charge, the meter size, times 12 months. This initial advance will be prorated 1/12 per month over the first twelve month period of service and credited to the customer's bill on a monthly basis. If service is not continued for at least one year after the date of initial service, no refund of the initial annual charges shall be due the customers.
The established billing cycle for water used is monthly. The billing cycle may be at longer intervals during the winter season.
Lime Saddle Community Services District has historically equated each and every dwelling as representing one (1) meter equivalent or one service connection. This manner of calculating the applicable monthly service charge for multiple dwelling accounts is to be maintained as part of the current rate structure, accepted as equitable by the ratepayers since the formation of the district.
All bills are subject to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Reimbursement Fee set forth in Schedule No. UF.
A late charge will be imposed per Schedule No. LC.
In accordance with Section 2714 of the Public Utilities Code, if a tenant in a rental unit leaves owing the company, service to subsequent tenants in that unit will, at the company's option, be furnished on the account of the landlord or property owner.
Charge for Commitment of Future Service. By Decision No. 08-05-032, the Commission authorized the Utility to impose a surcharge (SRF Surcharge) for repayment of a State Revolving Fund Loan to fund the construction of the Regional Intertie Project authorized by that Decision. In lieu of the SRF Surcharge set forth in Schedule LS-1A, an Applicant for new service who does not wish to actually receive service at the time of application but rather seeks only a firm commitment by the utility to provide service at some date in the future, shall be assessed a one-time charge of equal to (a) the applicable monthly SRF Surcharge for the meter size for which a service commitment is sought times (b) 240 months. An applicant assessed the charge described herein shall not be subject to the SRF surcharge or the SRF Surcharge Connection Fee set forth in Schedule LS-1A when the applicant actually begins receiving water service.
Within each of the three districts all new customers [applicants] requesting service to any previously un-served premises will be charged a SRF Surcharge Connection Fee calculated as the total of the monthly surcharges applicable from the effective date of the original tariff schedule [May 30, 2008] authorizing the surcharge to the date of connection.
