Other Billing Information

Monthly Billing Cycle :

The District reads all customer water meters with existing staff every month. The schedule for reading each meter varies slightly as the District is divided into multiple billing controls in which meters are read and accounts billed during the month. Water and sewer service charges (if applicable) are itemized and combined on the same bill. Please give our customer service staff a call with any questions regarding your account.

 

Past Due Notice Policy :

Payment is due upon receipt of the water/sewer bill and is delinquent if not paid within 30 days of the invoice date. A late charge will be accrued to delinquent accounts. A Reminder Notice will then be mailed to the delinquent customer, allowing at least 15 days for payment of the bill prior to disconnection of service. If payment is not received 4 days prior to the date of service disconnection, a Final Notice will be mailed to the customer specifying the amount in arrears and the scheduled date of pending turn off. The District will then turn off the meter(s) to such accounts that remain unpaid on that date. A Water Service Reconnection Charge shall be paid by the customer along with the delinquent amount prior to restoration of service by the District. Please call, visit, or E-mail the District's customer service staff for further details about any of the above charges or policies or to set up an amortization payment plan for delinquent bills.
