Recycled Water Availability for the 2022 Irrigation Season

Santa Rosa Water Staff are pleased to share that our recycled water supply is looking promising for the 2022 recycled water use season even with continued drought conditions. This season, we plan to initially allocate approximately 900 million gallons of recycled water for frost protection and irrigation use. We are hopeful that we will be able to increase this allocation monthly through June, supply permitting. By the end of January, each of our customers will receive notification of their initial allocation and will receive monthly updates throughout the season.

Agricultural Recycled Water Fees & User Agreements 

The City of Santa Rosa has distinct fees for Ag Recycled Water Customers, Urban Recycled Water Customers, and Geysers Reuse. The fee for Ag Recycled Water Customers pays for approximately one-half of the electrical cost to deliver water to our customers. The fee does not include labor or infrastructure maintenance. The fee takes into consideration the interruptability of recycled water deliveries, the operational flexibility that the interuptability provides the recycled water system, and the critical role Ag Recycled Water Customers play in beneficially reusing recycled water.

On October 3, 2019, the City of Santa Rosa’s Board of Public Utilities adopted the following fee schedule for agricultural recycled water use:

2020 2021 2022 2023 2024
$0 acre/ft $12.50 acre/ft $25.00 acre/ft  $37.50 acre/ft  $50.00 acre/ft
