Can one homeowner pay more than others in California HOA?


Can a California HOA require one homeowner to pay more than the other homeowners? I live in a small community HOA that also has it's own small water district. The HOA has a 30'x 30' easement on my property for a water storage tank which services the entire community. The HOA installed two auxiliary tanks that exceed the easement. I pay the mortgage and property taxes on the lot whose sole use is for community water. The HOA also wants me to pay full dues as well. I tried to negotiate with them about the inequity of my paying more than any other resident and their response was to place a lien on my property. Now they are threatening to turn off the water and deny HOA snow plowing. Can they do this? Isn't it illegal to make one homeowner pay more for water than another?
