Friends & Neighbors,
It's time to fire the Rancho Water District from maintaining and operating the Santa Rosa Sewage Disposal Plant.
Background: EVMWD and WMWD are under contract to use the Rancho operated Santa Rosa Facility. Rancho doesn't operate their disposal plant as efficiently as does EMWD.
Because of this Rancho, EVMWD and WMWD ratepayers pay 50 percent or more for their monthly sewer charges.
EMWD operates and maintains the Temecula Valley Regional Water Reclamation Facility and services various sections of Murrieta, Murrieta Hot Springs and Temecula.
Across the entire of Riverside County, EMWD appears to supply the most cost efficient operation and maintenance of sewer systems.
All of the infrastructure for both water and sewers is owned by the taxpayers of the State of California. The taxpayers through their legislators have created multiple organizations to manage and operate the water and sewer infrastructure.
Rancho Water District is obviously not managing our sewer system as efficiently as EMWD.
It's time to fire Rancho Water District and assign EMWD as the new manager of the Santa Rosa Facility. This will correct most of the rate discrepancies currently existing here in the Temecula Valley.
