In January 2021, the LCRA Board of Directors approved updates to the agricultural Drought Contingency Plan, contract rules and rates for interruptible agricultural customers in the Garwood, Gulf Coast and Lakeside irrigation divisions, and Pierce Ranch.
LCRA’s 2021 rate for the Garwood Irrigation Division is $38.32 or $45.42 per acre-foot delivered, depending on the customer’s location in the canal system. The 2021 water rate for the Gulf Coast Irrigation Division is $66.14 per acre-foot delivered. The 2021 water rate for the Lakeside Irrigation Division is $66.14 per acre-foot delivered.
LCRA staff is preparing standard contract forms incorporating the changes to the rules and rates. Here are draft examples of contract forms for each division:

LCRA supply of water to agricultural customers in the Garwood Irrigation Division is subject to provisions of LCRA’s 1998 purchase agreement with Garwood Irrigation Company.
