The Fire Flow Improvement Program was initiated in 1997 to improve the firefighting capability and seismic reliability of our water system. The program is funded by an annual $75 parcel fee paid by property owners in MMWD's service area. With the support of local fire officials, in 2012 the MMWD Board of Directors approved extending the original 15-year program for another 19 years (until 2031). The current program will replace 52 miles of pipelines with larger pipelines that can carry greater volumes of water and construct seismic improvements.
No, the annual fee is fixed and will remain the same for the duration of the current program, beginning in FY 2012-13 and ending in FY 2030-31.
