Water Shutoff Protection Plan

Water Shutoff Protection Act

May contain: sink faucet, indoors, sink, and tap

Due to a new law called The Water Shutoff Protection Act, SB 998 (Dodd), the State has mandated that all urban and community water systems in California update their policies regarding low-income customers or occupants who are delinquent on their water bills.
Customers or occupants will have more time between the billing date and the shut-off date and will be able to temporarily avoid discontinuation of residential water service for nonpayment by signing up for a payment plan or filing a formal appeal on the bill.

The following is a summary of the Seeley County Water District (SCWD) updated delinquency policy, which goes into effect on April 1, 2020.
