Understanding Your Bill


The bill is due and payable in full upon presentation. You, the customer, are responsible for ensuring that payments reach the El Toro Water District office on or before the due date. If the bill is not paid in full by the due date, service may be discontinued.

Written notice

A Written Notice is mailed when payment or an arrangement for payment is not made by the billing due date.

Final Notice

Before service is discontinued for nonpayment, a Final Notice will be placed at the service address to notify you that water service will be discontinued. When this notice is dispatched, a notification fee of $15 is added to your account. If you receive two such notices within any 12 month period, you must pay a deposit of $50 before service will be reinstated.

Reconnection of Service

Your water service will not be reinstated until all charges, including a reconnection fee, have been paid. The amount of the reconnection fee is dependent upon whether service is reinstated during office hours, $20, or after office hours, $30.
