Human Resources


The Chino Basin Water Conservation District (CBWCD) contracts with California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) for retirement benefits. For employees hired before December 31, 2012, the district’s retirement formula is 2% at 60, provided for full-time and part-time staff working at least 1,000 hours per fiscal year. As a result of pension reform legislation, employees hired after December 31, 2012, will be subject to a retirement formula of 2% at 62.

457 Deferred Compensation

CBWCD offers a CalPERS 457 Deferred Compensation plan through CalPERS. Employees may contribute any amount up to the IRS maximum amounts for the tax year. CBWCD does not contribute to an employee’s 457 Deferred Compensation account as it is completely voluntary and 100% employee paid. 


CBWCD provides medical benefits for full-time staff through Association of California Water Agencies Joint Powers Insurance Authority (ACWA JPIA), with choices from Kaiser HMO and a variety of Anthem Blue Cross plans.  CBWCD will pay a max of $2,223.27 a month for health (medical, vision, dental) for full-time employees.  Employees must cover any costs above the $2,223.27 monthly District cap.  Eligible part-time staff is allowed up to $350 reimbursement for medical insurance upon proof of payment.


Dental insurance is provided from Delta Dental for full time staff and is included in the $2,223.27 health benefit monthly allowance provided by CBWCD.


Vision insurance is provided from VSP for full time staff and is included in the $2,223.27 health benefit monthly allowance provided by CBWCD.
