Will I receive an invoice for my usage or do I have to calculate it myself?
The District will generate an invoice for all accounts that submit meter readings no later than 30 days after the end of the quarter. If you have not submitted your meter readings by that time, an invoice will not be generated. However, you are still responsible for submitting payment on time for the usage during the quarter.
Is there a penalty if I do not submit my meter readings on time?
You may also be charged penalties for a major violation for failing to submit meter readings within the required time frame. The first violation fee is $500. The fee for a second violation within 3 years is $1000. A third violation within 3 years can result in a civil suit. Details on this can be found in Appendix A in the Temporary Rules.

Are there late fees if I do not pay my bill on time?

What if I feel my bill is not accurate?
Please call the District office at (800) 256-0935 to discuss any potential errors on billing or on submitted meter readings. The District can only correct errors we are made aware of, so please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have regarding your billing.
Can I report usage and be billed monthly instead?
Yes. Please make sure you have completed a Billing Information Form and marked that you would like to be billed on a monthly basis. In this case, you will need to make sure that your meter readings are submitted before the end of the following month, or no invoice will be generated. Your bills will not be considered late unless they are late per the quarterly billing cycle. For more questions regarding monthly billing, please call or email the office.
