Costs
  • The applicant shall establish credit and the amount of prepayment shall be $1,000 plus a 1-time charge of $130.
  • Where it is necessary for the Utility to install a temporary service line and meter, the applicant will pay in advance the estimated cost to install, plus the estimated cost of removal, less the estimated salvage of the facilities necessary for furnishing service.
  • The minimum charge for each such connection or any water supplied shall not be less than the prevailing service charge as set forth in the rate schedule.
  • Temporary meters shall be billed according to rates set forth under the Water Rate Schedule.

  • Subsequent violations will result in a charge equal to $250 plus 2 times the estimated amount of water consumed for each violation.
  • Violators may, at the discretion of the City, be back billed for the estimated consumption used during the period that can be reasonably established, not to exceed 36 months.
Meter Reading
  • Temporary meters that are designated to a single point of connection shall be secured in place for the purpose of meter reading.
  • Meters with multiple points of designated connection must be brought to Azusa Light & Water Office at 729 N. Azusa Avenue during business hours the 3rd week of every month for purpose of meter reading.
