The goal is to ensure these systems are up to date and can support both current residents and future growth. This comprehensive review includes everything from the physical systems to the rules and regulations that guide them.

Diving Deeper into Rio Vista's Utilities – Preliminary Rate Studies Available for Review
Rio Vista has partnered with NBS, a leader in financial and engineering services, to conduct comprehensive rate studies on these three utilities to identify funding needs:
- Drinking Water: Determining the appropriate charges to maintain, expand, support and enhance the water utility for our community to ensure adequate, safe, and reliable drinking water.
- Stormwater: Addressing contemporary challenges in rainwater management, flood prevention and pollution control within our community.
- Wastewater: Ensuring that sewage management meets both current needs and future demands for our community to protect public health, including the consolidation of the wastewater facilities.
Summaries of these rates studies may be viewed HERE. Please note: These are initial discussions, and nothing is finalized yet. More details will be provided as we continue to evaluate the best options for our community's utilities.
