- Relief for Past Due Water Bills
SCV Water has applied for and received funding from the California Water and Wastewater Arrearage Payment Program* to provide financial relief for residential and commercial customers with eligible past-due water bills.
ELIGIBILITY. Funding for residential and commercial customers with unpaid water bill debt that was incurred for services rendered between March 4, 2020 and June 15, 2021, has been posted to customer accounts. All eligible customers were mailed a letter informing them of the amount of the relief funding, remaining past-due balance, and instructions on how to establish a payment plan.
MANAGE YOUR ACCOUNT. SCV Water’s late fees and shut-offs have resumed. To avoid shut-off for non-payment, please call the SCV Water Customer Care team at (661) 294-0828 to set up a payment plan.
* The California Water and Wastewater Arrearage Payment Program is funded through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 and administered by the State Water Resources Control Board.
- Late Fees and Shut-offs Have Resumed
Water service shut-offs and late fees have resumed. We strongly recommend customers who have fallen behind on their water bills to settle past due bills and/or set up payment plans to avoid shut-off. We’re standing by to help – please call Customer Care at 661-294-0828. An on-site dropbox and phone payment lines are available 24/7 at: 844-350-4354. Visit our office or pay online.
- COVID-19 Protocol
As state and county guidelines around COVID-19 change, SCV Water remains deeply committed to the safety of our customers and employees.
Please keep in mind that state and county guidance takes precedent over federal guidelines, and we will follow any safety protocols still in effect as of that day, including masking and social-distancing.
As a friendly reminder, your water supply is safe. The COVID-19 coronavirus has no impact on the quality or supply of your tap water. We continue to operate our water system to ensure you receive reliable water service that meets all state and federal drinking water standards.
Through it all, water is essential and we are here for you! Stay safe and healthy.
