Budgets & Audits


EOCWD has four budgets that are planned and administered annually (our "Fiscal Year" runs from July 1 - June 30); each budget provides a detailed spending plan for each of the major functions performed by the District.  The budgets below cover FY 2007-2008 through FY 2018-19 (the current Fiscal Year).  A brief explanation of the background behind each budget is discussed below:


Wholesale Zone Operating Budget - These are the funds budgeted for the day-to-day operation of the "Wholesale Zone," so called because these facilites provide imported (from Nothern California and the Colorado River) water on a wholesale cost basis (we don't charge any additional fees on top of what we pay for the water).  These costs include everything from the cost we pay for the water itself, to the materials, tools and equipment used to repair facilities, to the salaries and benefits of the employees working on the WZ.  This imported water is supplied to five "retail" water agencies: the City of Tustin, Golden State Water Company (Cowen Heights/Lemon Heights area), EOCWD's own "Retail Zone," the City of Orange (emergency use only) and Irvine Ranch Water District (emergency use only).


Wholesale Zone Capital Improvement Program Budget - These funds are used solely for build, replace or rehabilitate capital facilities like reservoirs and pipelines,


Retail Zone Operating Budget - These funds are budgeted - similar to the Wholesale Zone Operating Budget - for the day-to-day operations of our "Retail Zone," where we provide water directly to consumers in the unincorporated Vista Panorama area of Orange County.


Retail Zone Capital Improvement Program Budget - Like the Wholesale Zone CIP, these funds are used to pay for the building, replacement or rehabilitation of large capital facilities.
