  • MM slash DD slash YYYY

  • I request the billing for water service and/or fire service as identified above, be mailed to:
  • Business Tenant Information

  • (if different than Service Address)
  • Property Owner Information

  • By State Law, Citrus Heights Water District (CHWD) looks to the land that received the service for payment. For this reason, CHWD requires the Property Owner to keep the account in their name, but as a courtesy, CHWD will bill the Business Tenant. As a result, CHWD requires a Deposit, in the amount of $224.00 on each account #, that are tenant occupied and are billed to the tenant as directed on the Commercial Owner/Tenant Agreement. It is the responsibility of the Owner to pay the deposit. The deposit will be retained for the duration of this agreement and any subsequent Owner/Tenant Agreements until the bill is changed back into the Owner’s name. At that time, the Owner must make a written request for the refund of the Deposit balance. Any outstanding balance on the account must be paid in full prior to the refund. Interest will be credited to the deposit account on a quarterly basis.

    If the Business Tenant fails to pay any outstanding balance, the Property Owner may be responsible for any past due amount and any additional fees that have been incurred, including late payment penalty, turn-off notice service charge and a Disconnect/Reconnect service charge as set forth in the District's current Water Rates and Miscellaneous Charges and Fees. The District also has the right to place a Certificate of Water Lien on the parcel or pursue other collection opportunities. Property Owners are welcome to call (916) 725-6873 to check the status of their account(s).

    By completing and signing this agreement, the Property Owner is authorizing CHWD to bill directly the above Business Tenant for metered water service, fire service, or both as selected above. It is the Property Owner's understanding that all facilities that are on the building side of the District's control valve are owned and maintained by the Property Owner who assumes any attendant liability for said facilities. If you have questions regarding billing please contact us at (916) 725-6873.

    I have read and consent to the terms of this agreement.
