Re: Protest to San Jose Water Company Advice Lctter 508/508A/ 508B
To Whom It May Concern:
Please be advised that the Water Division is approving San Jose Water Company's (SJWC)
Advice Letter No. 508-8 filed on May 26, 2017 which is a supplement to Advice Letter 508 filed
on May 2, 2017. SJWC is requesting that Advice Letter 508-8 be effective June 1, 2017.
The advice letter filing meets the requirements set forth in General Order 96-8. Industry Rule
7.3.2 and General Rule 7.6.1. Water Division authorizes SJWC to re-instate two surcharges: 1) A
$0.08 per 100 cubic feet surcharge to amortize the uncollected balance of $996,023 remaining
from the recovery of the previously authorized 20 14 Mandatory Conservation Revenue
Adjustment Memorandum Account (MACRAMA) originally approved in California Public
Uti lities Commission (Commission) Resolution W-507 1; and 2) A $0. 1441 per 100 cubic fect
surcharge to amortize the uncollected balance of $2,232,698 remaining from thc recovery of the
20 15 Water Conservation Memorandum Account (WCMA) originally approved in Commission
Advice letter 508-8 requests that SJWC he allowed to recover the uncollected balances of the
accounts beginning June 1, 20 17 for a period of less than 12 months and to monitor the account
balances and terminate the surcharges when the balances have been collected. At that time,
SJWC will inform the Commission by filing a Tier 1 Advice letter to revise the tariffsheets and
to remove the surcharges.
The cuslomers ofSJWC filed prolesls during lhe prolesl period ending May 22,2017. The
protests indicated thc relief requested in the advice letter is unjust, unreasonable, or
However, the Commission resolutions approved the surcharges for lost revenue during the
declared drought emergency in 2014 and 20 15. Water Division reviewed the relevant
calculations and work papers and detennined the uncollected balances occurred due to rcduced
water usage and SJWC should be allowed to re-instate the surcharges to recover the uncollected
balances. As a result of the surcharges, the monthly bill for a residential customer with a S/8-inch
meter using 15 Ccfper month will increase by $3.36, or 3.3%.
