The Biola Community Services District (BCSD) is soliciting proposals from qualified consulting firms to conduct comprehensive rate studies for water and sewer. The focus of these studies is to ensure BCSD’s water and sewer utilities have sufficient, defensible funding to meet their operational, capital, current and proposed debt service obligations and those utility rates are set proportionate to the cost of providing service to each customer class. In addition, the consultant will provide a financial model showing rate impacts created by new capital and operational requirements. This model will be useable by BCSD staff for future financial planning.
BCSD is responsible for providing water and sewer services to approximately 320 customers. Water consumption is seasonal and varies throughout the year. During the extreme heat of summer water usage is typically higher, sometimes double, than that of winter usage.
The selected consultant will analyze the current rate structure, utility operations, and capital needs to provide recommendations on a new rate structure(s) and will follow all guidelines stated on the Request for Proposals (RFP). The RFP can be found online at www.biolacsd.org. The deadline for submitting proposals is 3:00 pm on January 9, 2024. Any proposals received after this time will not be accepted or considered.
