An unpaid bill becomes delinquent if payment is not received within 60 days from the statement date. A delinquent bill will incur late fees. The customer is sent written reminder notices and, if necessary, a notice of intent to disconnect service for failure to pay the delinquent bill. If the bill has not been paid after the final warning, service will be discontinued. If the District is unsuccessful in collecting on the delinquent account, the balance due bill will be turned over to an outside collection agency. There is a charge for payments returned due to insufficient funds.
