Desert Water Agency Ordinance No. 66
9-1 Establishing Credit: Water service, in all cases, will be kept in the name of the property owner. Each applicant for water service will be required to establish credit to the satisfaction of the Agency before service will be rendered. Owner’s credit will be deemed established, with no deposit required, if the new owner can provide proof of ownership for the residential property to be serviced, and/or the owner has had previous service within the Agency service area during the past two years and maintained an account history where service has not been discontinued for nonpayment for 12 consecutive months. All non-residential service will require a deposit, unless the owner has other non-residential service with the Agency and has maintained an account history where service has not been discontinued for nonpayment for 12 consecutive months.
