Fiscal Year 2023 Budget

Vista Irrigation District’s 2023 Budget represents a financial plan for the fiscal year (July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2023). This financial plan includes controllable costs, which the District exercises discretion and cost control over, and uncontrollable costs, such as purchasing water, where the District cannot exercise cost control because the San Diego County Water Authority (Water Authority), the region’s water wholesaler, sets the rates. The financial plan also contains costs that are essential to support the continued investment in infrastructure maintenance, repair and replacement.

District revenues are projected to increase by about 6% to $58,503,310, primarily as a result of water rate and service charge adjustments that were adopted on January 19, 2022 and implemented April 1, 2022.

District expenses are projected to increase by 16% to $65,799,800; $6.0 million of the increase is related to the undergrounding of water facilities required as part Indian water rights litigation settlement entered into in 2017.

District capital expenditures are planned to be $9.8 million with $8.1 million of that amount being spent on pipeline replacement ($2.5 million) and construction of a new reservoir and pump station ($5.6 million).

The District plans to use just over $17.1 million from its reserves to fund the undergrounding project as well as other infrastructure projects.
