Fiscal Year 2025 Budget

Vista Irrigation District’s 2025 Budget represents a financial plan for the fiscal year (July 1, 2024 through June 30, 2025). 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 5% to $67.8 million, primarily as a result of the inclusion of the Water Authority’s pass-through rate increase as well as the District’s annual water rate adjustment effective on July 1, 2024.

District expenses are projected to increase by 9% to $57.5 million primarily due to Harmful Algal Bloom management and mitigation, purchased water and water treatment costs as well as inflation.

District capital expenditures are planned to be nearly $6.0 million with $5.6 million of that amount being spent on infrastructure improvements, including the replacement of pipelines, continued rehabilitation of a reservoir, and initial design work on a new reservoir.

The District plans to contribute approximately $4.3 million to its reserves this fiscal year to fund future capital projects.
