Supervisor Lawson-Remer Votes Against Rainbow and Fallbrook Water District Defection

News Date

SAN DIEGO (AUGUST 29, 2023) – Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer voted to not allow the Rainbow and Fallbrook Water Districts to detach from the San Diego County Water Authority because their separation would cause water rates to spike for households across the region.

“If we allowed Fallbrook and Rainbow to defect, it would harm our entire region. More households would pay higher water rates than would benefit from a detachment,” said Supervisor Lawson-Remer. “I thank Supervisor Joel Anderson for introducing this policy solution that puts all San Diego County residents first, not just a few.”
