Request for Proposals 
Comprehensive Water Rate Study

The City of Davis is requesting proposals from qualified firms to perform a comprehensive water rate study. The purpose of this study is to prepare a cost of service study, develop an appropriate rate structure, and recommend rates for the City that generate adequate revenue to cover: operations and maintenance costs based on industry best practices; rate stabilization; capital repair and replacement costs; major Capital Improvement project costs; an adequate reserve fund; required debt coverage; and necessary studies to maintain an efficient and resilient utility.

The Study will analyze a 20-year period, with a five-year Proposition 218 rate adjustment schedule implementation.
