*In the event that your payment is returned due to insufficient funds, Camrosa may charge a fee as imposed on returned checks. Camrosa is not responsible for fees or charges applied to your account by your financial institution for non-sufficient funds. Some financial institutions may charge a transaction fee for electronic fund transfers. Please check with your bank regarding electronic fee policies. To be eligible, your account must have no past due amounts. Camrosa may terminate your EZPay participation if your financial institution returns more than one payment in any 12 consecutive months.

Billing Policies

Billing is done on a monthly basis, with the previous calendar month’s use reflected on the current bill. Bills are due on the last day of every month and are considered past due the first day of the following month. Effective May 2017, the District began to assess a ten-percent late fee on past-due accounts, and a 1.5-percent monthly interest rate will be applied to balances more than 30 days delinquent. Disconnection due to non-payment may result in the collection of a cash deposit in order to reconnect service. For more information on these and other policies, Camrosa’s District Rules and Regulations (Ordinance 40) can be viewed here.

If you have questions regarding your bill, you may call Camrosa anytime during regular business hours. If you call within ten (10) days of the billing date, you may stop payment of the bill.

Checks or money orders should be made payable to Camrosa Water District. Please remit the bottom portion of your bill with your payment to ensure proper posting to your account.

How to Turn Off Your Water

Most homes have a shutoff valve where the water line enters the house. Find this valve and make sure it closes easily. Valves close in a clockwise direction. Use this valve in case of an emergency or to make necessary plumbing repairs. To ensure valves work efficiently, they should be exercised routinely and replaced if defective.

To turn off your water at the meter, find your meter box. This is usually in a small concrete vault near the street. To shut off the water here, lift the lid off the meter box by using a large screwdriver. Turn the valve that is located closest to the house clockwise ¼ of a turn to shut off the water. Do not attempt to turn the valve located closest to the street.

You can also contact our office at (805) 388-0226 if you have any questions.

Note: Any damage to District equipment caused either purposely or accidentally will be the financial responsibility of the customer.



In the Spring 2023, the District embarked upon a comprehensive five-year rate study in accordance with Proposition 218. The purpose of the study was to review our existing rates to determine if rates were sufficient for the operation of our current system in addition to projected future costs of new water supply projects in infrastructure rehabilitation.

Camrosa held Community Outreach Forums on Rates in March and May of 2024, to receive customer input and answer questions. The Board of Directors accepted the Rate Study at the April 19, 2024 Board meeting and set the public hearing for Thursday, June 6, 2024, at 5:00 P.M. to adopt the proposed rates.

Backflow Prevention

Camrosa has a backflow prevention program to protect the drinking water supply from pollution and contamination caused by cross-connections and backflow.

When a water line is connected to equipment containing a non-potable substance, this is known as a cross-connection. Contamination may occur when water flows through a cross-connection from a non-potable source, such as a sprinkler system or heating and cooling system, into the potable water system. This can happen through a process known as backflow.
