Information about Higher ECCV Bills
ECCV has fielded a number of questions and concerns from customers in recent weeks regarding higher water bills. We appreciate customers who have gotten in touch with our customer service team to ask questions about their bills, and the District has been working to provide information on Nextdoor. We thought it would be helpful to compile a running list of common questions ECCV has been received about recent bills, and include the information that has been shared.
This year’s transition from spring to summer is featuring intense heat, and despite a quick occasional storm, not much precipitation. That combination is producing a spike in water demand. ECCV bases its water production on demand. As more water gets used, more water gets put into the system. Here’s how production varied between May 2020 and May 2019:
That amounts to a nearly 60 percent increase in water production compared to last May. The good news is that right now ECCV’s renewable water storage space is full or near full. The catch: a hot spring has melted much of the mountain snowpack.
