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.
