EMWD, UCR Partner on Water Affordability Study

Perris, CA (January 28, 2020) — An academic study by the University of California, Riverside’s (UCR) School of Public Policy, conducted in partnership with Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD), has found that water and sewer costs within EMWD’s service area were a fraction of the federal government’s water affordability threshold.

UCR reviewed eight years’ worth of monthly water bills from EMWD’s service area and compared household water costs the costs of water to other household expenses as a fraction of median household income (MHI). They find that, on average, monthly water and sewer costs accounted for approximately 1.5 percent of median monthly household income.

EMWD Posts Unclaimed Money List

Perris, CA (January 16, 2020) —Current and former customers of Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) may be entitled to unclaimed money. Each year, EMWD posts a list of unclaimed monies, which are typically refunds associated with the closing of water accounts, water efficiency rebates or other fees.

EMWD attempts to locate the current address and contact these customers and developers, but those efforts are sometimes unsuccessful due to the lack of a forwarding address, companies closing, or other reasons. In addition, EMWD performs a search of its customer database to see if the customer has a current active account where the unclaimed money can be applied.

Be Sewer Smart with FOG This Holiday Season

Perris, CA (November 27, 2019) — Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) would like to remind its customers to be Sewer Smart this holiday season by limiting what they put down the drain.

As families come together and make large, holiday meals – including turkey and roast beef – often times significant amounts of fats, oils and grease (FOG) are collected at the bottom of cooking dishes. When those liquids are poured down the drain and enter the sewer system, they begin to harden as they cool and eventually solidify, causing blockages in customer’s homes and within EMWD’s sewer collection system.
