4/2/20 Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday issued an executive order that prohibits all public water agencies from disconnecting service to residences during the coronavirus pandemic. The order also does not absolve customers from bills they owe. They still are responsible for payment, but cannot be disconnected if payments are late or missed.
The order remains in effect indefinitely. It applies to residential service and to businesses that have been deemed essential by the state public health officer, such as grocery stores, health clinics, carry out restaurants and others.
It also requires water systems to restore service to residences that were shut off for non-payment after the March 4, 2020, statewide emergency coronavirus proclamation. Key Words: Finance, COVID-19
