Calleguas is an independent special district organized under Article 9 of the Municipal Water District Act of 1911 through an election in 1953. Its Board of Directors reviews all financial activity monthly. Financial records are audited annually by an independent accounting firm, which prepares the annual financial statements. Calleguas provides those statements to the State Auditor.
Values of all properties within the service area of Calleguas Municipal Water District are dependent on the availability of imported water. Likewise, all properties receiving public water benefit from ongoing efforts of the District to drought-proof its service area. Revenue produced by the Water Standby Charge is primarily directed to the construction of facilities that increase the reliability of the water supply to southeast Ventura County. If necessary, the money may also be applied to operating expenses, contributing to stable water rates.
