CWD and SSWD are taking care to undergo a deliberative, public process to explore combination opportunities. To date, this has included public discussions since July 2021 through the CWD/SSWD 2x2 Committee, which includes leadership and management from both water providers, and regular Board meeting reports.
The districts also retained an independent financial consulting firm that specializes in working with government agencies and utilities, to conduct an independent, third-party analysis to explore combination opportunities. The financial consulting firm finalized a study that has been reviewed by both Boards of Directors. Any decisions to move forward will be made after an open process that explores the study’s findings and provides opportunities for input.
