How to Use the Online Bill Payment Service

Account Registration

Required fields are denoted by double asterisks. Once you have complete the account registration form, press submit to create your account.

My Account

Once you login, you will see the My Account page. From this page, you can view a number of things including:

•  Account Information
You can view your account number, service address, mailing address, and even edit your profile. To edit your profile, click the Edit Profile link. From here, you can edit the information you entered while registering your account.

•  Account Status
You can view your current bill's due date, any past due balance, current charges, and your total balance due.

•  Vacation Billing
To avoid disconnection and reconnection fees while you are away on extended vacation, we suggest you contact the District office prior to leaving. We will assist in making payment arrangements to ensure that your water service is not interrupted. Advance payment will also avoid any late payment charges upon your return.

If you need special assistance or have any questions about your service, please call the District office at (916) 991-1000.
