How Can We Help?

Variance Request Form

This form is intended to be used to obtain general information. 

Note: Please do not provide sensitive information such as your Social Security Number, bank account or credit card number, or information that would enable someone to access an online account such as your username and password. 

Information about how EMWD will use your information can be found within EMWD’s Privacy Policy.

This form is to request an allocation other than the standard amount EMWD uses for your type of home. If you believe you need an adjusted allocation based on the criteria listed below, you must complete and return this form. The allocation billing system is designed to serve as a tool to help you identify problems such as leaks or over-watering. Using water efficiently helps EMWD keep water rates low by reducing purchases of expensive water from outside the local area. Variances may be approved for any of the following reasons and are subject to periodic review by EMWD. 

IMPORTANT! Some variances may not be approved per EMWD’s current drought status. For more information, see EMWD’s Water Shortage Contingency Plan.
