The Westborough Water District is being required to make improvements to our parking lot to add a handicap parking space which will reduce the number of customer parking spaces from five to two spaces. With limited parking, we urge customers to sign-up for automatic payment deductions (click here for additional information) or use the Districtís drive-up drop box, preferably during non-working hours. Our parking lot tends to get really full on the due date of the bills and it will become even more challenging after the improvements are made. So, please note that if your payment is placed in the drop box on the due date, it will be considered timely received as long as it is in the box by the time we open the office at 8 a.m., the following business day.

CITY OF SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO SEWER LATERAL COMPLIANCE CERTIFICATE
The Sewer Later Compliance Program has ended as of September 14, 2013, for Westborough Water District customers.
The City of South San Francisco recently approved an ordinance amending the Cityís Municipal Code Regarding Water Quality Control and Sewer Lateral Construction, Maintenance and Inspection, which went into effect September 14, 2013. It clarifies that homes served by the sanitary sewer system owned and operated by the Westborough Water District are exempt from the Cityís sewer lateral compliance certificate program. Without the exemption, this program would have required property owners in the District to have a plumber inspect/repair their sewer lateral prior to the sale of their home.
Please contact us at (650) 589-1435 if you have any questions or need further information.
