Thank you to FPUD's Lewinger

We want to express our gratitude to Fallbrook PUD General Manager Keith Lewinger for helping guide the process at the Water Authority that resulted in a two-year extension of the Special Agricultural Water Rate (SAWR). Local farmers are facing a real challenge with the escalating price of water and the SAWR was set to expire on December 31 this year. The extension will result in $12 million in savings for county farmers in exchange for accepting a lower level of service during water supply disruptions. As a Water Authority director and member of the committee that formed the extension recommendation, Mr. Lewinger was able to serve the Fallbrook community that we believe wants to keep farming viable.
