Balances from Previous Owners

Many new owners are not aware that, unlike other utilities, water charges are associated with the property rather than with the person who incurs the charge. What this means is that property ownership is transferred along with any unpaid balance to the new owner. The District does prepare a final bill for the previous owner. However, if the previous owner does not pay the final bill, the balance will transfer to the new owner after 60 days.
