We’ll Take Care of Your Water, You Take Care of Each Other.
Your Water is Safe.
Oxnard Water is committed to providing its customers with safe, reliable, and quality water services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The City’s water supply meets all stringent state and federal drinking water requirements.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has no impact on the quality or supply of your tap water. Your tap water is safe and available to drink.
As a reminder: please do not flush paper towels, shop towels, or wipes down the drain or toilet. “Flushable” wipes do not disintegrate, creating serious problems in our sewer system. Rather than flushing, please dispose of these products in the trash.
Also, water standing in pipes of closed buildings needs to be flushed as part of the reopening process. Learn more here.
Important Information About Your Bill
The safety of our residents and staff continues to be the City of Oxnard’s top priority during this public health emergency. Due to COVID-19 and social distancing measures, the City has determined that meter reading should be suspended until shelter in place orders are lifted or modified sufficiently to resume this activity safely.
Starting in April, some water and wastewater customer bills will be estimated based on usage from the same period of the previous year, a common practice when actual meter reads are not available. Until meter reading is resumed, any bills for the following months will continue to be estimated in the same manner. During this difficult time, we understand that our customers’ actual water use may have been impacted by staying at home and/or business closures. When meter reading is restarted, the first bill with actual meter reads will be reconciled with the estimated amounts to realign each customer’s account.
It is critical that everyone has access to clean water to stay healthy. To support our community, the City has suspended water shutoffs for non-payment and assessment of penalties for delinquent bills. Payment plans are also available for customers who need more time to pay their utility bill and while our offices are closed, we encourage customers to call us to discuss their options.
For more information, please call Utility Billing at (805) 385-7816.
