Subject to the provisions of this article, a district may borrow money to provide funds to pay all costs of any public improvement authorized by this part and may issue revenue bonds to evidence the indebtedness created by such borrowing.

Such revenue bonds shall constitute special obligations and evidence a special indebtedness of the district which shall be a charge upon, and payable, as to the principal thereof, interest thereon, and any premiums upon the redemption of any thereof, solely from, such revenues and funds as are specified therein and in the proceeding for their issuance. They shall not constitute general obligations of the district and they shall neither constitute obligations nor evidence any indebtedness of any other public agency of which the district may be a part, or of the State.

All such bonds shall recite upon their face the substance of the preceding portions of this section and shall also recite upon their face that they are issued under this article.

(Added by Stats. 1951, Ch. 1590.)


Revenue bonds under this article shall be authorized, issued and sold in the same manner as are revenue bonds of irrigation districts under Division 11 of this code and shall in all respects conform to the provisions of that part as near as such provisions can be made applicable.

The Contra Costa Water District may provide for bonds of the district to bear a variable interest rate, which rate shall not at any time exceed the maximum rate permitted by Section 53531 of the Government Code or any other applicable provision. If the rate of interest is variable, the resolution adopted pursuant to Section 31391 shall state the manner and intervals at which the rate shall vary, and all bonds shall recite on their face the manner and the intervals at which the rate may vary.
