California is starting a Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP)
LIHWAP will offer a one-time payment to help low-income households pay past due water or wastewater bills. To qualify, households must meet the following criteria:
Total household gross income is at or below 60% of the State Median Income or a household member is a current recipient of CalFresh or CalWORKs AND there is a past due amount on the water or wastewater bill.
Board of Directors adopts new water and wastewater rates. The new rates take effect July 2021.
Donner Summit Public Utility District’s water treatment plant is located in the mountains on Donner Summit. Upgraded in 2018, the plant has the capacity to treat and deliver up to 1 millions of gallons (mgd) of water daily. The District also provides water to the Big Bend community.
Donner Summit Public Utility District implements the most stringent methods for treating wastewater. A state-of-the-art Ultraviolet system disinfects wastewater to the highest level, allowing the District to be the first wastewater treatment plant in California to recycle water for snowmaking.
