Rates for Participants
Effective September 1, 2022

On Monday, June 20, 2022, the GRP Review Committee voted to recommend adoption of a proposed GRP Fiscal Year 2023 Operating Budget, which will require rate increases and amendments to the GRP’s Rate Order for Participants. The motion passed with 3 votes in favor, and 2 against.
On Thursday, June 23, 2022, the GRP Review Committee’s recommended budget and Rate Order was presented to and adopted by the San Jacinto River Authority’s (SJRA) Board of Directors. The amended GRP Rate Order is available on SJRA’s website at www.SJRA.net/GRP under the “Information Library” and “Rates” tab. We recommend that you review and become familiar with the amended GRP Rate Order.
Based on rising inflation costs for products and services, such as chemicals and electricity, the GRP Review Committee approved a 4% increase. Effective September 1, 2022, the Pumpage Fee and Import Fee will increase from the current rate of $2.88/1,000 gallons to $2.99/1,000 gallons, and the Surface Water Fee will increase from the current rate of $3.30/1 ,000 gallons to $3.41/1,000 gallons. Thesc fees generate the revenues necessary to pay for the operation and maintenance of the GRP facilities and to fund debt service. SJRA strives to effectively manage the costs of operation and maintenance of the GRP facilities so that the lowest responsible fees are adopted under the Rate Order.
Formal adoption of the GRP Division’s Fiscal Year 2023 Operating Budget will be presented and considered for approval at the SJRA Board of Directors Meeting on Thursday, August 25, 2022. An additional notice will be sent to GRP Participants following the SJRA Board of Directors approval of the GRP Division’s Fiscal Year 2023 Operating Budget.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact GRP Division staff by telephone at (936) 588-1662.
