The facilities maintenance charge is $26.50 per acre. Please note, a landowner only pays a facilities maintenance charge when they aren't taking any surface water. Each landowner pays either an irrigated charge or a facilities maintenance charge, but not both.

If the State of California levies fees or other charges upon MID, MID reserves the option to pass the cost onto the water customers.
