Frequently Asked Questions?

Billing Questions:

  1. When is my bill due? Bills are mailed at the end of the month and are due by the 10th of the following month. Failure to receive a bill does not relieve your responsibility to pay by the due date. If you do not receive a bill, call the office during normal work hours at 892-5544.
  2. When do you disconnect water for non-payment? If a bill is unpaid after the 20th of the month, it will be disconnected. Nonpayment can result in additional charges and disconnection of service without further notice. Previous balance and fees must be paid in order to restore service.

Technical Questions:

  1. Who maintains my cut-off valve? The District installs the original cut-off valve , usually within 12 inches of the meter box. The maintenance, repair or replacement of this valve is the responsibility of the customer.
  2. Who maintains my Pressure Reducing Valve? This, like the cut-off valve, is the customers responsibility. Basically, anything on the customer's side of the meter is the customers responsibility.
  3. How do I cut off my water supply? The District installs a customer cut-off valve on the customer's side of the water meter usually within 12 inches distance. These often get covered over the years, but a little digging should expose the valve.
  4. How do I adjust my pressure reducing valve? The valve is normally factory preset to 50 psi. The pressure may be adjusted up or down by turning the adjustment bolt - Clockwise to raise pressure or counterclockwise to lower the pressure.
