December 6, 2014: The Board has approved ordinance No. 2014-3, repealing sections
6.02.01, 6.02.02 and 6.02.03 related to tenant accounts. This change discontinues
the practice of processing tenant applications for water service and moves the responsibility
of putting the tenant’s name on the water bill to the owner. The district will send
out a notice to property owners and tenants of the changes, how to proceed with
implementation, and timeline for implementation.

Costs Of Service
MSWD customers can readily control their water bill by controlling their consumption.
You can find cost details on the cost of water service page and how to read your
Sewer charges are based on residential, multifamily or business category. Find details
on the cost of sewer service.
For both water and sewer service, the monthly fixed charge will apply to all accounts, whether the meter service is active or not. Why? Once connected to the water or sewer system, capacity to service your property must be permanently available. Ongoing maintenance and costs associated with that capacity must be recovered rather than spread to other active rate payers.

Vacation Disconnection Service:
Residential customers who will be away for a while often inquire about turning off
their water service. MSWD recommends turning off service as a protective measure
if no friend or family is available to check the status of the property.
Generally, there is no cost advantage for discontinuing service during a vacation.
Here’s why: the charge for water service disconnection is $18 and the charge for
reconnection is $18. The water service fee of $9.32 per month remains in effect
during periods of non-use. The sewer service charge also remains in effect during
periods of non-use.
If you wish to have vacation service, you must complete a
Request for Disconnection Form
and submit it to the Administration Office at 66575 Second Street, allowing 48 hours
advance notice. Our Service Department will handle your request between the hours
of 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Please note that forms sent by mail may take several days
to arrive, so mail your form at least one week in advance of your disconnection
date or bring it to the office in person for best service.
