The weighted vote at 2023 San Diego County Water Authority board meetings will decrease slightly for the Rainbow Municipal Water District, the Fallbrook Public Utility District, and Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.

The Nov. 17 SDCWA board meeting approved the 2023 weighted vote allocations for the CWA member agencies. The share of the weighted vote includes 3.892% for Rainbow, 2.205% for FPUD, and 0.078% for Camp Pendleton. During 2022 meetings, Rainbow had 3.926% of the weighted vote; FPUD had a weighted vote of 2.238%, and the Camp Pendleton weighted vote was 0.081%.

The member vote entitlement is calculated based on the total cumulative financial contribution from each agency since the CWA was formed in 1944. The contribution amount includes all taxes, assessments, fees, and charges paid to or on behalf of the CWA by property located within the member agency's boundary by the June 30 end of the previous fiscal year.

The cost of water treatment is not included in the total financial contribution, but the totals include standby charges, capacity charges, infrastructure access charges, readiness-to-serve charges, connection and maintenance fees, and annexation fees as well as charges for water delivered and sold to CWA member agencies.

The total cumulative financial contribution of all 24 CWA member agencies was $16,166,693,662 for the period ending June 30, 2022. The 2020-21 cumulative total was $15,420,418,340. Rainbow's cumulative contribution through the end of fiscal year 2021-22 was $629,152,426 while the district’s total through the end of 2020-21 was $605,396,744. FPUD had total 2021-22 cumulative contributions of $356,419,324 and had made $345,069,149 of payments through June 30, 2021. Camp Pendleton had total payments of $12,607,898 as of June 30, 2022, and $12,525,886 at the end of the 2020-21 fiscal year.

For the 2021 board meetings, Rainbow had a weighted vote of 3.923%; FPUD’s share was 2.256%, and the Camp Pendleton weighted vote was 0.084%. In 2020, Rainbow had a 3.975% share; FPUD’s share was 2.275%, and the Camp Pendleton weighted vote was 0.088%.
