Billing Information & Rates

The District generates statements based upon the water usage reported from Illinois American Water. Most customers receive a statement every other month, usually within two weeks of when the water bill is generated. The District's ordinance requires that UCSD bill the property owner; the tenant cannot be billed. If you are not the owner of the property, please contact the Billing Department.
