    service and to which is added to the charge for water used computed at the Quantity Rates.
  2. All bills are subject to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) Reimbursement Fee set forth in Schedule No. UF.
  3. A late charge will be imposed per Schedule No. LC.
  4. In accordance with Section 2714 of the Public Utilities Code, if a tenant in a rental unit leaves owing the company, service to subsequent tenants in that unit will, at the company's option, be furnished on the account of the landlord or property owner.
  5. The annual service charge applies to service during the 12 month period commencing January 1 and is due in advance. If a permanent resident of the area has been a customer of the utility for at least 12 months, the resident may elect, at the beginning of the calendar year, to pay prorated service charges in advance at intervals of less than one year in accordance with the utility's established billing periods.
  6. The established billing cycle for water used is monthly.
  7. The opening bill for meter service, except upon conversion from flat rate service, shall be established after the first day of any year, the portion of such annual charge applicable to the current year shall be determined by multiplying the annual charge by one three-hundred-sixty-fifth (1/365) of the number of days remaining in the calendar year. The balance of the payment of the initial annual charge shall be credited against the charges for the succeeding annual period. If service is not continued for at least one year after the date of initial service, no refund of the initial annual charges shall be due the customers.

As authorized by the California Public Utilities Commission, all bills across Del Oro Water Company Districts are subject to a surcharge over twelve (12) billing cycles at $10.54 per month to each customer's bill as approved by the CPUC on May 30, 2019 by Resolution No. W-5193 following Advice Letter No. 511-A. This charge is for the specific purpose of collecting lost revenue of $800,000 due against the DOWC Lost Revenue Balancing Account which tracks the lost revenue associated with the November 2018 CAMP Fire offset by cost savings associated with lower sales on volume-related items such as power, and any insurance or litigation proceeds received by DOWC.
