Customer Payment Responsibility
Legal-deeded property owners are responsible to pay bimonthly water and wastewater bills regardless of their occupancy or use of the property. The only exceptions to this requirement are the suspension of service and foreclosure abatement policy (See Forms and Documents).
Tenant/Property Manager Billing Options
The Calaveras County Water District does not send paper copies of bills to tenants or property managers. The District only holds the legal deeded owner responsible to pay the bill and thus only sends paper copies of the bill to owners. If a legal deeded property owner would like their tenant to receive an electronic copy of their bill, they need to give the tenant their billing information to set up an account on www.ccwd.org. Property managers can also provide the owner information needed to set up accounts to help facilitate this electronic billing process. If a second copy of paper bills is desired, the District will send them out after an annual fee of $15 has been paid to the account.

Under normal circumstances, no deposit (other than the non-refundable account establishment fee) is required of customers who are the deeded owner of the property for which they are requesting service. (See Customer Billing Information for the instance in which a deposit will be required).
The District provides several different ways for customers to pay their bills. At the office during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.). The District also accepts Visa/Mastercard/Discover, cash, paper and electronic checks and money orders. Customers can pay online at any time, over the phone 24 hours a day seven day a week by using the Automated Payment System or by calling the office during business hours. If sending payment via mail, please send checks only - no cash. If customers come by the District headquarters outside of regular business hours, they can drop payment envelopes (checks only) through the drop slot for processing the next business day.
