San Luis Obispo County Department of Public Works has issued a Water Will-Serve Policy for County Service Area 10A, (CSA 10A), which consists of the southern portion of Cayucos on the east side of Highway 101.
A bit of history- In March of 1993, the County Board of Supervisors declared a water shortage emergency in CSA 10A to limit the issuance of water service-will serve letters, due to the perceived water shortage for future customers. In October of 2006, CSA 10A contracted for 25-acre feet of Nacimiento Water. In May of 2012, the Board of Supervisors voted to remove the water shortage emergency.
Current CSA 10A water use is 145-150 acre-feet per year. CSA 10A has 190 acre-feet from Whale Rock Reservoir; CSA 10A has 25-acre feet from Nacimiento (with an option to increase to 80 acre feet); Typically 1 acre-foot will serve 4 properties in CSA 10A; There are approximately 170 vacant lots in CSA 10A; CSA 10A’s water supply is sufficient for full build out within CSA 10A.
Water for the northern areas of Cayucos are supplied by Morro Rock Mutual Water and Paso Robles Beach Water.
CSA 10A can now issue water service will-serve letters on request. The water service will serve letters are a commitment by CSA 10A to provide water to a property. Will-Serves are specific to a property and can not be transferred to another property. Will serve letters will transfer to the new owner when a property is sold.
Costs of Water Service for CSA 10A:
Application filing fee: $100; Water Connection Fee: $8,100; Meter Fee ( If service line is installed): $325; Service Line Installation- (varies): $1,500-$2,000.
