As of April 1st, 2017, The City of Waterford will be discontinuing its senior/low income discount program. The City Council has offered various discounts for citizens over 65 regardless of income, those with disabilities, some discounts only to water customers, and some to sewer customers, as well a discount just for paying the bill 12 months in advance. The City Council voted on November 17, 2016 to offer a consistent discount to all eligible income regardless of age or ability.
The City of Waterford will instead offer a Utility Bill Assistance Program that would provide a $10 discount to the total utility bill per month for qualified low-income customers. The funds for the discount program will derive from a fund for delinquency charges not from the water rate revenue.
Customers who qualify would need to fill out an income certification application with the Central Valley Opportunity Center, located at:
1581 Cummins Dr., Suite 100
