Water Rate Assistance Program

Customers qualifying for the Water Rate Assistance Program will have their base service charge for water reduced by $15.00 each monthly billing cycle. Customers may apply and participate in either the Water Rate Assistance Program or the Senior/Disabled Low Income Assistance Program, but not both.  

Applicants must reapply for the program every two years. Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing once the application has been submitted and approved. Applications may be submitted by mail. An appointment is required before submitting the application directly to Central Valley Opportunity Center. For further information, please contact Central Valley Opportunity Center at 209-577-3210.
