Why is my bill so high all of a sudden?
First check to see if you have a leak on your property. Go to our maintenance page for more information about leaks. If there is no leak, here is a list of items to consider:

  • Check irrigation timers
  • Was a swimming pool just filled?
  • Was a hose left running?
  • Are there more people living in the home?
  • Did a toilet have a leak?
  • Did you just put in new landscaping or a lawn?
  • Have you recently experienced power outages at your home? If you have, it could mean your irrigation timer is reset to its default factory settings, which may cause your timers to go off on non-watering days or times. In addition to resetting your clocks and other electronic appliances after a power interruption, don’t forget to check your irrigation timer as well.

These are just a few areas to check. If you still have questions, please call Utility Billing at 530-642-4000.

Understanding your residential sewer charge
The residential sewer commodity charge is based on what we call the "winter quarter average" or your water consumption during the winter months. For billing cycles 1, 2, 3, or 4, the water consumption on the February bill is used to calculate a new sewer commodity charge to go into effect on the April bill. For billing cycles 5, 6, 7, or 8, the water consumption on the January bill is used to calculate the new sewer commodity charge to go into effect on the March bill. The new commodity charge will remain in effect for one full year.

How do I add my renter to get the bills?
The account will remain in your name as the property owner. As a courtesy, we can send the billing to your tenant if you fill out an Owner/Tenant Billing Agreement.
