Notice regarding Past Due Utility Payments

In October 2016 the SPMUD Board adopted a Delinquent Bills (Past Due) Policy.  Since all customers share in the cost of delinquent accounts, those who don’t pay on time have an impact on everyone. This policy will therefore benefit our customers who pay on time since revenues from late fees will be used to recover costs incurred by late payments.

Beginning January 1, 2017 any utility account that has a past due balance will be assessed a late fee in the amount of $7.50 per EDU/per Quarterly Billing (EDU stands for an Equivalent Dwelling Unit which is the typical volume & strength of wastewater generated by a single family home).  Late fees will appear on the next quarterly bill following the late occurrence.

Example for a single family residential property (1 EDU):

  Previous Balance= $102.00

+ Late Fees= $7.50 (assessed by quarter $2.50 x 3 months)

   -> Past Due Amount= $109.50

+ Current Sewer Charge = $102.00

  -> Amount Due = $211.50
