AWA To Absorb RPPUD

AWA To Absorb RPPUD

The Amador Water Agency Board of Directors have begun the process to absorb the River Pines Public Utilities District.  The River Pines PUD provides water and wastewater services to several hundred customers in the unincorporated community on the northern edge of Amador County.   Over the years, the Amador Water Agency has absorbed a number of such small water districts, including Lake Camanche Village and La Mel Heights.   At their meeting earlier this month, the River Pines Board of Directors voted to seek the merger.  The process of absorbing the district will take several month, as the Water Agency must conduct a due diligence review of the smaller district's finances, and the Local Agency Formation Commission or LAFCO will need to approved the merger and give residents of River Pines the right to protest the move.  Customers of the River Pines PUD will pay less for water service, but more for wastewater as AWA customers, with their overall bill depending on how much water they use.
