FPUD and Rainbow customers will have the opportunity to vote in the Nov. 7, 2023 election to consider switching water wholesalers, leaving the San Diego County Water Authority and instead purchasing water from Eastern Municipal Water District.
The district board called the election after receiving approval from the San Diego Local Agency Formation (LAFCO) to proceed.
LAFCO voted in July to let our agencies detach from the Authority. Now it is up to the voters of FPUD and Rainbow to make the final decision. FPUD and Rainbow boards of directors voted on August 11 to move forward with an election to be held on Nov. 7, 2023.
Information about the independent LAFCO analysis and impacts of this potential change can be found at:
In addition, the San Diego Registrar of Voters will be preparing an independent analysis which will be part of the Voter Information guide that will be available prior to the election.
