Water Bill Assistance Programs
Walnut Valley Water District offers eligible customers two paths for assistance with their bill:
- A rate reduction through the Affordable Rate Program
- More time to pay through payment extension requests
Walnut Valley Affordable Rate Program (WVARP)
Walnut Valley Water District offers eligible customers an Affordable Rate Program to help with monthly bill payments. If your household qualifies for a discount on your energy bill under the electric or gas CARE programs, you may also qualify for a discount of up to 50% on the base rate of your water bill.
If approved, the discount will become effective within sixty (60) days after the date of approval. If your application is not approved, you will receive a letter from the District explaining the reason for that disapproval. Applicants may apply any time throughout the year; however, applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis, contingent upon the availability of funds.
Complete the form below to apply for the Walnut Valley Affordable Rate Program (WVARP).
Payment Extension Requests
WVWD offers customers experiencing financial difficulties payment extension plans upon request and after thorough District review. Customers must complete the form below, this is only for payment extension requests, this does not eliminate the obligation to pay for water usage.
