Coronavirus Update

 

The Carmichael Water District (District) main lobby at 7837 Fair Oaks Blvd is currently closed to the public.  

The District's top priority is to ensure the safety of our employees and customers.  Customers should be assured that our water supplies are not affected by the COVID-19 virus, and the District will continue follow Federal, State and local health advisories as we serve our community.

Payments can still be made via: phone (855) 573-6101, online (click here), or in our drop box located in the customer parking lot at 7837 Fair Oaks Boulevard, Carmichael, CA 95608.

If you are having trouble paying your water bill, please contact Customer Service at Billing@carmichaelwd.org.


Board Meetings

Due to an exceptional increase in COVID-19 case rates, on January 6, 2022, the Sacramento County Department of pubic health issued a Public Health Order directing all public boards, councils, commissions, and other similar bodies to suspend in-person public meeting and conduct all meetings virtually.  As a result, the District will immediately move all District related public meetings to a virtual format. Information about accessing virtual meting, and participating, can be found by following the link below.

On April 2, 2020, Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-42-20, implementing a statewide water shutoff moratorium and reconnection mandate. The District has ceased all collection activities on delinquent accounts, and has reconnected all accounts that were disconnected for delinquency since March 4, 2020.  Please note that nothing in the Governor’s order eliminates the obligation of water customers to pay for water service, prevents a water system from charging a customer for such service, or reduces the amount a customer already may owe to a water system.
