LCRA Explains New Proposed Rates (News)
By Heather WagnerLCRA officials held a public forum on Monday, March 31, to introduce the new proposed water rates and to answer questions and hear comments about them at the Lakeside Pavilion in Marble Falls. Karen Bondy, Senior Vice President of Water Resources, walked the crowd through a slide show presentation, beginning with where the Highland Lakes stand now in the drought, and ending with the newly proposed water rates for both firm and interruptible water customers for LCRA. No significant rainfall for several years, has 2014 starting out worse than the year of lowest inflows over a 70-year-period of records, which occurred just three years ago in 2011. The year 2013 was the second lowest, and 2012 was the sixth lowest. If the trend continues, then the Highland Lakes will see the drought worse than the drought of record this year. Lakes Buchanan and Travis are currently sitting at 38 percent capacity, which prompted an Emergency Drought Relief Order to be approved in February by TCEQ that curtailed water that is normally sent to rice farmers, who are interruptible customers, in the lower basin. This is the third year in a row that LCRA has requested the Emergency Relief Order, and the only time in history that it has been done. In addition to curtailing sending water downstream, LCRA has ordered that all firm customers, including municipalities like the City of Austin, Cedar Park, Granite Shoals and Marble Falls to limit lawn watering to only once a week. LCRA has begun steps to secure new water supplies, including looking for groundwater sources in Bastrop County to use at the numerous power plants located there. A new reservoir is also in the works, to be located in the lower basin, off-channel. The proposed basin is expected to add an additional 100,000 acre-feet of water storage by allowing the capture of rain that falls below the Highland Lakes to be pumped into the reservoir and then used to supply both firm customers and interruptible customers in the lower basin. The goal is to fill and empty the new reservoir several times during the year, so that when there are episodes of good rain, it is not lost. LCRA holds senior water rates in the lower basin, and because the reservoir is being constructed off-channel, it will not require the same types of permits needed when building on the river. The project has already begun; construction will begin in July of 2014 and is expected to be completed in 2017. Bondy told the audience that LCRA is proposing new water rates in order to cover the costs associated with providing water to a growing population of more than a million people, businesses and industries, agriculture and the environment. The costs that LCRA must cover and are built into the rates are for river management activities including daily operations, water supply planning, and Hydromet system operations. River management includes improvement project for the dams that create the Highland Lakes, water conservation, flood management, and dam safety and maintenance. The long-term goal of LCRA, Bondy said, is to achieve full cost recovery through interruptible rates, however, when the rate changes were first proposed in January, LCRA customers complained that the division of costs between firm users and interruptible customers was not equitable. Currently, firm customers pay $151 per acre-foot of water used, and $75.50 per acre-foot for water stored but not used. Interruptible customers pay only $6.50 per acre-foot for the stored water, and then pay delivery fees, which costs them a total of $28-38 per acre-foot. The January proposal had rates climbing to $179 per acre-foot for firm users and reaching $251 per acre-foot by 2019. (This cost is the wholesale price – the end user’s price is determined by the utility company that provides water to their home of business.) Originally, the following rate changes were proposed for interruptible customers; Gulf Coast : Current - $28.52, Proposed - $48.45; Lakeside: Current - $38.53, Proposed - $50.32; and Garwood: Current - $32.81, Proposed - $43.28. LCRA received feedback on the proposed rates, including suggesting that the rates should be based on how much water is used, and that the cost of new water supply projects should not be borne on the firm customers. The second set of proposed rates have the firm customers seeing an increase to $175.46 per acre-foot in 2015, and then a three percent increase annually until 2019, which means that in 2019, rates will be approximately $197 in 2019. Interruptible customers will see higher rate increases, but even with the increases, the rates will not yet cover the full cost of providing the water to them. To do so would mean a 165 percent increase for the Gulf Coast, a 61 percent increase for Lakeside, and a 28 percent increase for Garwood. In calculating these rates, LCRA took the last five years of usage and determined what the rates would be, which means that the last three years that water has been curtailed to the Lower Basin in included in those figures. In addition, the original proposed rates for firm customers included $22 million of the cost for the new reservoir project, but that amount was removed from the calculations of the newly proposed rates. According to Tim Hammond, Quantitative Analyst Lead for LCRA, the proposed rate of $175 for firm customers would cover all fixed costs that LCRA has. Revenue from interruptible customers would be used for other water supply projects, not including the current reservoir being constructed in the lower basin or the underground water projects in Bastrop County, retiring debts, and issuing potential credits. Audience members asked why rates are not the same for all water customers, and LCRA representatives Bondy, Tim Hammond, and Ryan Rowney said that because interruptible users are just that, interruptible, and did not hold long-term contracts, they received a lower rate. Asked what incentive the rice farmers have for conserving water, and Rody responded that once the price goes up on the water, they will be more apt to conserve. Senator Troy Fraser opposed the proposed rate changes. “All of the lakes in the LCRA system were built before 1960, and the debt of building those reservoirs has been totally paid off. The LCRA has not constructed a new water source since that time period, so there is absolutely no reason for an increase in rates to LCRA’s firm customers,” said Senator Fraser. “It seems the LCRA is trying to cover the cost of bad business decisions made by a bloated bureaucracy.” Read Article.More from News.

LCRA Moving Ahead With New Reservoir: Wharton County Reservoir Would Add 90,000 Acre-Feet Of Firm W
The Lower Colorado River Authority Board of Directors Wednesday unanimously approved spending $17 million on the next phase of a new water reservoir near the Texas coast. “The new reservoir is vitally important to the region, and this funding keeps the project moving forward,” LCRA General Manager Phil Wilson said. “LCRA serves one of the fastest-growing areas in the country, but the area also is prone to severe droughts. This new reservoir will help LCRA continue to provide a reliable water supply to the communities, industries and other customers that depend on us. “The reservoir will benefit everyone in the region by reducing the demand on water from the Highland Lakes,” Wilson said. LCRA is planning to build the first new reservoir in the basin in decades off the main channel of the lower Colorado River near Lane City in Wharton County. The reservoir would add 90,000 acre-feet a year to LCRA’s firm water supply, increasing the supply by about 15 percent. Last year, the Board approved $18 million to purchase the property and conduct the initial design, engineering and permitting. The additional $17 million approved by the Board Wednesday will fund the final design of the reservoir and infrastructure needed to pump water from the Colorado River to the reservoir, then from the reservoir to customers. It also will pay for moving an electric transmission line on the reservoir site and other work. The reservoir project is estimated to cost a total of about $215 million and be complete by 2017. LCRA is exploring potential funding sources, including grants and loans. The Board decision on Wednesday funds the project through June, when the Board is expected to consider funding for the rest of the project. Lakes Buchanan and Travis are the region’s main water reservoirs. They provide water for more than 1 million people in Central Texas, and businesses, industries, agriculture and the environment throughout the lower Colorado River basin. Because of the severe drought gripping Central Texas, the lakes are at 38 percent of capacity and could hit all-time lows later this year if the severe drought continues. The new reservoir would benefit customers throughout the lower Colorado River basin. It would reduce the need to release water from lakes Travis and Buchanan to serve customers in the lower basin. The reservoir would also allow LCRA to capture water that enters the river downstream of Lake Travis for future use. “The reservoir project makes sense for the entire basin,” Wilson said. “This action shows how committed the Board is to expanding the water supply for the future of this region. We’re moving forward with the reservoir, drilling wells in Bastrop County and looking at other options.” Read Article.More from Regional.
