It is way past time for the Imperial Irrigation District to boil-up a new set of chicken bones and upgrade their rusted-out soup-can-container used to determine water rates. Determining the cost of the water rate charged to municipalities and water districts by a utility such as the IID should involve actual costs. Over the years, I have requested the cost formula, criteria and other factors (bones from free range chickens versus caged) used by the IID to determine the water delivery rate charge for municipalities. Based on replies to my requests, no criteria is used based on actual costs, consequently, it is a water rate game of water "Yahtzee".

Why is the $20af rate for municipalities and the agriculture water rate the same?
