Los Angeles County Waterworks Districts are offering help to customers with overdue bills.
A community outreach event to explain the assistance – which includes a state program to pay up to $2,000 in past-due bills for low-income families and an extended payment plan option – is scheduled for next week in the Antelope Valley.
The outreach event will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 25, at the Antelope Valley Waterworks Office, located at 260 East Ave. K-8, Lancaster. To apply for the California Low Income Household Water Assistance Plan through the Maravilla Foundation, visit: http://www.maravilla.org/Services/Utility-Assistance or call 323-721-4162.
To set up an extended payment plan, which offers an additional three months to 12 months to pay water bills, call Waterworks at 877-637-3661. This help is not available to all households in the Antelope Valley, but only to those homes served by Los Angeles County Waterworks Districts 37 and 40.
Waterworks District 40 covers most but not all of Lancaster, part of west Palmdale and Anaverde, most of Lake Los Angeles and Hi Vista, part of Littlerock and Sun Village and part of Pearblossom. Waterworks District 37 covers part of Acton.
