Drought is Here - A mandatory 20% reduction in water use is currently in effect for City of Sonoma Water Customers.

Why doesn’t new development pay for capital improvements?

New development does pay a one-time connection fee to “buy in” to the system. New development is also required to pay for and install infrastructure required to serve it. Capital improvements funded by customers’ rates are needed to maintain and improve the water sys- tem for the benefit of current users, not to serve new development.
