Starting or Stopping Service

Starting Service

To start new water/sewer service with Rainbow MWD, complete the New Owner PDF form below and return seven business days prior to the escrow close date. 

A deposit is not normally required to hook up water and/or sewer service within the Rainbow Municipal Water District.

Stopping Water/Sewer Services

To stop your services with Rainbow MWD, fill out the Exiting Owner PDF form below and return seven business days prior to the day escrow closes. You will need to provide us with a forwarding address for your final bill, as well as your driver's license number or last four digits of your SS#. If you have your payment automatically deducted, when service is stopped, your automatic payment will process your final bill amount and will be deducted from the form of payment chosen. 

Water/Sewer Billing Invoice

Your water/sewer services will be billed to you each month. The billing invoice you receive reflects the amount of water used in the previous month. Meters are read every 27 to 33 days. Applicable fixed charges are also included, and payment is due regardless of receiving an invoice. If you did not recieve your bill please contact us immediately to get your balance. 

Responsibility of Owner

The water and sewer bill becomes a charge against the property on which the water and sewer are furnished and against the owner of the property. Delinquent bills from previous owners or tenants are the responsiblity of the present owner. In the process of purchasing property, the buyer should verify the status of the water and sewer account to ensure any unpaid bills are resolved during escrow. Property ownership is verified by the District through San Diego County Records.
