Start Service

Every residential and commercial property require an application for service.

Account establishment fee

Desert Water Agency assesses a $30.00 account establishment fee on the first bill to all new accounts.

Residential accounts

Property owners: All owners must set up all accounts whether it is rented or leased.

Tenants: Property owners may authorize tenants to be billed directly; however, the owner is responsible for all unpaid charges. If the property has a new owner, please advise them to submit an owner’s application so that our records are accurate and water service remains on.

Realtors: Complete the request to start service as property owner and provide a listing agreement that you are the authorized agent for the property owner and responsible for water service. A $100.00 deposit and $30.00 establishment fee must be paid upfront before service can be turned on.

Commercial accounts

Buisnesses, office buildings: A deposit is required depending on meter size and will be held for two year after service is started with no shutoff for non-payment, and the agency will apply the deposit to the water billing until deposit is used in full.

Meter Size:
5/8×3/4” $100.00
1” $100.00
1 ½” $150.00
2” + $200.00
