How to Set Up Automatic Payments

The board of commissioners has discussed ways to allow customers to pay their bill automatically and/or monthly. Unfortunately because we do not wish to be responsible for your credit card information and we do not have a large enough system to pull exact payments, customers will still need to keep track of the amount they owe each month.

Our online bill pay system does have an option where the customer can pre-set the amount they wish to pay each month and choose the date.

Customers may follow the link below and set up their own recurring payments. All payments by credit or debit card include a service fee that goes to the processor.

Please keep in mind that you will still be responsible to know how much you owe and make sure it is paid on time or you will be charged late fees.

We suggest that you choose your highest bill from a year and use that as the basis for your recurring payments. Then at the end of the year you can check your balance and decide if you have enough credit to skip a payment or adjust your payment amount.

Comprehensive Plan Update

The Malaga Water District has adopted an updated comprehensive plan, pending review by the Health District. The plan must be updated every six to ten years.  This plan shows how we will use our resources to maintain the water system, update aging infrastructure, and plan for new growth.  It also includes a water use efficiency plan.  We need all customers to be using less than 240 gallons per day by 2020 and less than 230 gallons per day by 2029.
You can read the details of the presentation to the board in the PDF below.  We encourage all customers to come to board meetings if they have questions.

New Payment Option

Malaga Water District is pleased to provide our customers with another option to pay their bills securely and online.  You may follow the link (red box in the sidebar or at the bottom of this post) to a secure portal to pay your bill.  You will need to know your account number and the total of your bill before you can pay.  

Please note that due to the fact that we are a public utility, all credit or debit card fees will be in addition to the amount due on your bill.

Cold Weather Water

Winter has arrived, or at least cold weather. Here are some suggestions to help
keep your water running during the winter.
Protect any outside faucets with coverings available at any hardware store.
Protect any exposed lines with heat tape or wrap them with insulation.
To help protect your meter, use Styrofoam insulation to surround the meter and
cover it.
The water is normally about 50 degrees. If temperatures drop drastically, you
could run a small amount of water to keep the lines from freezing. If you notice your
water running slowly and cold keep a small stream of water running to prevent a total freeze up.
